Treasure Island

Prasad Natarajan

(April 2nd 1983 / Bangalore)

Bizarre Expedition


Wintry evening welcomes stranger shadows,
They stretch pull each other, swaying gentle heads,
Some glitter like the finest pearl from ocean deep,
The others fade away, to the wandering oblivion,

On elevating green sour droplets finds its home,
Iniquitous twig dwarfs rejoice on camp leftovers,
While unnoticing crawling obnoxious rattler hisses,
Weaving maiden gobbles her unwise brave knight,

Ultrasonic undetectable sounds of the upside down,
Munching purple globes spilling the crimson juice,
Opportunist the ever cautious hoot of the deadly caws,
Perfect supper dine, furry warm coats with long tails,

Maladroit footsteps, mind in trance, antenna freak,
Wasting those warm summer lyrics on bitter night,
A lonely vintage beauty strikes a lingering tiny pose,
Click, click, bizarre flickering lights hit the wide roads.

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
