Treasure Island

R.K Das

(22, january / INDIA)

Alıen Benign


The heart throbs
For you, a kindred soul
Living in an alien land...

What music your parrot twitters?
What fruits your trees bear?
And with what stars your sky glitters?
What wind blows your hair?
What dreams colour your repose,
How elegantly you tread the land,
How softly you breathe the air
What paints your mood
In morning, day and night?

My heart yearns to see
These sights and hear the sounds,
Which you see and hear
In your own way
So different so unique!

    I found myself also wanting to know what this person in an alien land feels and dreams! Your words inspire curiosity and seem to whisk the reader away to another reality. (Report) Reply

    What familiar & friendly Alien, and how benign that stirs the imagination of the poet so much that he feels like transporting himself by dwelling upon too much in that alien land of hers --My heart yearns to see
    These sights and hear the sounds,
    Which you see and hear
    In your own way
    So different so unique! ...........
    this is one of those scribes which caught my attention even in the Manuscript stage..............
    simply innocent! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
