Treasure Island

Saumya Gilra

(Rajasthan)

The life of a Cloud


I float upon the colored skies
hide at high noon
shape myself as I want
and waft through the moon,

I jump over other clouds
slide through the rainbow
drift past the colors
Steady and slow,

But now it’s really sad
As there is no beauty left to view
dust and garbage everywhere
even in the ocean blue

There is nothing we can do
So please listen to our plea
So that in this world
Beauty will return for us to see,

I float upon the colored skies
hide at high noon
I wait patiently drifting past
Till beauty will return soon.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
