Treasure Island

ritty patnaik

(6th july 1952 / cuttack)

coral mollys garden

as the eastern sky heralds day-break
the nostalgia of dawn
fills me with the fragrance of coral jasmine.
the light broke into a soft morning,
easily with a smile my memories of
shafali flowers in mollys garden
came again and again.

we go out to greet the morning sun,
little basket in hand, to pick up flowers
strewn, like a blanket of white.
for, it will adorn lord shiva and laid
at his feet.

the tree looks like a wholesome bouquet
branches full of orange and white,
brilliant little flowers,
my senses feast at this wonderous sight.

the air gets heavy with
soothing soft fragrance
of nocturnal love,
shaken out of their reverie
and dreams of the night!

    Ritty, I feel that your Molly's Garden should be published as a serial in a squence
    fashion! It would give a greater impact and a unity to the subject!
    Very well written!

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!

Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
