Treasure Island

Neela Nath


They Are


The windows, doors
are broken.
The roofless house
is not home anymore!
Not a morsel of food
to eat or a glass
of water to drink!
Hatred like arsenic
has engulfed the
entire household.
They are away from
the rings of happiness.
He has turned off
the radio.........
So music is off!
The divided roads
will take her to
the world that's
out and out her own!

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,

Far south the lift,
