Treasure Island

Ramesh T A

(28th August 1950 / Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India)

A BEACON OF LOVE!


Lonely as a cloud I was walking on the beach;
Pain of love lost I was trying to forget in Nature.

Reclined I on a sand meadow musing over Moon.
Moon light beam was falling on the dancing waves
As light house beacon from the horizon to the shore
Enlightening and guiding the sea faring boats there!

A 173 year old defunct light house is still standing
As a memorial to the tourists coming to the beach!
The past love too as the light house beacon remains
In the mind forever to revive the glory of past times!

Love bloomed as green plant but remains as blue Sky;
But the past memory of love ever gives joy in dreams!
Everyone’s life has a meaning for all to learn afterwards;
But memory of love lives in the world till the end of time!

    Love is natural, And, in this poem, I love the way you have shown the related similarities between love and nature itself. Beautifully done. 10 (Report) Reply

    Very beautiful here. You create an imagery of loss of a love. It was like watching a master painter. You captured this wonderfully. Excellent job. (Report) Reply
