Treasure Island

The Sunny Noon! !


We have been begging the nature
From its inception
From Her welcoming ceremony into
the light of Our face
Into the table of Our hearts
As a tool to the living.

Nature has blessed Us so much
It has pampered Us so well
To has given Us the ray to hold on
day after day
The handless and live less Strand
staying 300mitres above the sea level
Between the forces of gas and gravity.

Of which We know not its mystery
But We hold a shining joy in Our hearts
Yet She has given Us things to live with
We have gotten the gift among many
Of which We now have
But with fear in Our tablet hearts.

Let the giver accrue it praise from
Our lips
And distinguish Our detest from the
blazing of the sunny noon
That have been instrumental to the
smiling of Our lives on and on
That have become the convergence
and divergence lens
That have encroach Our sight.

The sunny noon We have asked for
We have asked for sunny noon and
not a burning noon
That would burn Us alive.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
