Treasure Island

sekharan pookkat


Vibrant shout


Yellow dim light in the restaurant
Made them pale
And Cloudy eyes of the gathering
Searched for some thing

Bearers were walking
From one table to another
A node or a word
Were enough for them to serve

Contort their body
Towards the ears of clients
To hear the whispers and served
Various brands again and again

A loud cry followed by a vibrant shout
Bring my 'Black Turkey'
Broke the murmuring
And touching sound of glasses and cheers

White were in the store
Not to serve
But to reserve
And no more black.

He fell down in that darkness
Murmuring the name of his lost lover
And his eyes were closed
Swirling her image around him

No more black
And no more white
A smile on his face
Bloomed in peace.

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
