Treasure Island

Tirupathi Chandrupatla

Dwell a While in Ivory Tower

Day to day interactions
Needed for one's success
Crowd mind with an array of thoughts
Leading toward utter confusion.

It's time to build one's own
Ivory tower and dwell at its top
Far far away from the crowds
And create a period of isolation.

That period of tranquility
Provides the needed impetus
To proceed with routine of activity
And let life proceed at its pace.

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
