Treasure Island

Bhaskar Roy


Destination...


Often i felt
Stranded in the crossroads
Like being in the platform
Of an unknown station
Waiting for my train
To take me to an undefined, unnamed destination

Somewhere... Someplace

Where sanity reigns
Where love is not just a word
Where judgements are unheard of
Where every moment is a celebration
Of the joy of being alive...


Weary and tired
Of this long never ending wait
I found a bench
To rest my weary soul
Covered with the dust of many long anticipations
And vulnerable searches


Looking around
I found the answer
In the paradoxes
Of the mind

It came in a Faqir's soulful song
'Oh mind there is no where to go but in'

The somewhere Someplace
Is an illusion of the mind
For the journey and the destination
Are not seperate
And the moments lived here and now
IS the eternal rainbow
I have been searching for eternity...


I boarded the train
With a feeling of detached bendiction
Take me wherever
For the journey is now
A divine moment...

Poem of the Day

poet William Wordsworth

I

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
