Treasure Island

Geetha Jayakumar

(Kerala Palakkad)

Crowned with feathers of experience!


Gooseberries are the fruit that tastes
Tart, Sour, pungent and finally sweet
It's like testing of all your qualities
Then finally giving sweetness of the fruit.

Experience is the test of patience.
Fruits are the reap of hard work, ripens at different times.
Like parents getting love and care in their older times.
Relishing the rare Fruit of contentment is another feather.
Never loose that fruit to the time or to anyone
Relish it whenever you get.

But being happy in-spite of all odds is another feather added.

Experience teaches us,
Never dance, when some one play with music of your emotions.
No stones can touch you until you allow so.
Spread the lights of wisdom and love, peace is sure to follow.

Experience is the scars remained,
Telling us to walk cautiously.

Experience is the best teacher
Which give us pain first to make us understand
Then teach lessons.

It teaches us to rise strongly
Even after falling from a great height.
Its making us strong
By testing us hard
Its like iron has to pass thru a high temperature
To mould it perfectly strong.

Who doesn't want to wear crown?
Each of us has crown.
Each feather embed in it is the experience.
And
Experience is the wonderful teacher!

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
