Treasure Island

indira babbellapati

(visakhapatnam, india)

From the biography of an unknown woman: X


in the sandy castles
is her dwelling
in the house of cards
her dreams reside

sometimes a footstep or two
get placed in her chambers
just for a leisure activity
or out of fascination

she gathers all the sand
she puts the cards together
to build another castle
another house of dreams

somehow, she has to survive!
