Treasure Island

Abdul Wahab


Bye for now


Suddenly like tsunami
Something strong I felt in my heart

It was at deep midnight
Among the ghosts of silence

I put a trap and thought
It would catch

With all my trouble
I caged the bird

Profusely bleeding
And seriously wounded

I wound not need to go
But they would come

But alas!
No one cared

The world became
Indifferent and stoic

They all became resistant
To the old medicine and small dose

I am ill at ease and engrossed
friends, bye for now

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
