Treasure Island

Amitava Sur

(20.01.1950 / Kolkata)

Broken Wings

With bits & pieces step by step,
We've woven a happy small nest.
My beloved on this earth
Made it a small heaven - in fact.
We were Dancing, cooing & singing in nights
In side that cuckoo’s nest.
Life was flowing smoothly so nice,
Merrily … as the butterflies,
With colors & luster…it was so vibrant
And so happy were we.

A gusty storm in between,
Shook away in a gloomy day.
The lovely nest along with my love ….
Was brutally snatched away.
The heaven on earth what we made –
That paradise was lost as such.
With a wounded heart and the broken wings -
Now, I am deserted on a sandy bay.

Sitting alone on the river bank –
Saw the dying sun was setting down.
I saw a new piece of land -
Rising afresh on the river bed.
With the heavy heart, I could read =

Time and tide wait for none,
One will perish and other will come.

The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
