Treasure Island

Denny M.X.

(3.6.1983 / Chalakudy\Kerala\India)

a child speaks...


being lost in childhood
is nothing
but meditation
often in serene atmosphere
i tune my nostrils
to absorb
the lost fragrance of childhood
and the ears
to hear
the lost voices of childhood
and memories...
where i lived with nameless grass
nameless plants...
and their nameless Flowers...
nameless colours...
i played with ants
and nameless insects...
nameless butterflies...
i lived in shrubs
as if in a wild forest
without name
without words
a child speaks...

    How simple life was when we were children... at times, tramatizing, but when I think of comfort, I am small, and my mother and father are there to protect me...

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!
