Treasure Island

Dr Tapan Kumar Pradhan

(October 22,1972 / Bhubaneswar, Odisha, India)

History


In my veins flows
my mother's milk -
through my veins
runs the milk
my mother was fed
by grand mother.


My arteries swell
with my father's blood -
swelling my arteries
flows the blood
my father received
from grand father.


And tonight I give
you my blood,
and along with it
my history.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
