Treasure Island

Palas Kumar Ray



Gaps remain.Alas! In gaps
Flying wishes forgetting to fly fall.
Desires soldering dreams suddenly stall.

Gaps remain.Alas! In gaps
Mind recoiling goes to slumber deep
Virtue's traded for vice always cheap.

Gaps remain.Alas! In gaps
denied Justice wisdom helplessly wilts.
Flag upholding the faith on truth alas! tilts.

    Thought provoking. Great images. I welcome the idea of reading poems from a poet form India. It will help me know more about that country and its customs. Your perspective of life is different and consequently very helpful to me. (Report) Reply
