Treasure Island

Kiranjit Singh Bajaj

(23/4/1962 / Mumbai, India)


Darkness, thou art the color that life befriends,
Rays of hope tease, ill cast a shadow,
On thy impenetrable perfect black hide,
That could mask the sun.

Darkness, thou envelope me in thy mighty embrace,
Hold me still in thy pitch, ere I betray,
For thou art the color of my deeds,
Light not the Savior.

Darkness, my steely don, my comrade,
The once cold winter gloom,
Come fill me with thy hue, pitch-black,
That I may fuse with the absolute, unnoticed.

    Darkness casts no shadow.
    It embraces everything unreal.
    A spark of it is light,
    That shows what darkness
    Holds once in a while.
    Real of the unreal.

    Good philosophy, Kiran (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
