Treasure Island

Abdul Wahab

>>Cloud Tracking

To take a long breath
I lift my tuckered face
Suddenly I see a piece of cloud
Moving slowly towards west

In the air of inconvenience
Against a vast back drop of azure
His scattered drops of light
Heave upon me as relief

In a voyage of unknown
His gorgeous journey is sure
A source of wit
An opportunity to widen my imagination

Among pent up feelings
In the confusing atmosphere
Of bad and good memories
His graceful movement
Thrusts upon me as a gift
To fight the wind of dissatisfaction

My long staring at him
Blurred my vision
He fades first and next disappeared
And I wonder if he left for me
A profound hint
Nothing to worry
Everything moves slowly towards west

    here there is nothing about ''the east or the west '', ''moving to west '' is metaphorical which means to fade away, die down, disappear.....with time....the very common sight of our pain, sorrow, suffering, even our dream.. thanks for comment... (Report) Reply

Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
