Treasure Island


(9 -21 / Thrissur (Kerala) / Vijayawada (A.P) , India)


A flower will bloom on my plant too one day
And I shall offer it to you my dear.
My flower will have many petals,
Its colour will be that turns you envious of it and
Its fragrance will traverse beyond your stretches.

When I offer you my flower you will visit my garden perchance
And you will nip all the buds at once.
My flower will frown at me then and
I shall cry unto the skies
Till the stars invite me to join them for ever.

    Man is so greedy that he is never satisfied with anything given with love, he longs to snatch away forcibily all that is with the donor! A poem in a romantic cast with deeper layers of meaning! ! Enjoyed reading! (Report) Reply

    Your poetry hits at so many levels, and I enjoy the challenge of discovering your intended meanings. The flower is a gift of nature, so pure, so simple, and so beautiful that it even transcends the significance of the woman. Wonderful! (Report) Reply

    yet a solitary bud weeps for the bloodbath in her spaces...for her friends dead and gone...

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
