Treasure Island

Amann Aroraa

(28 March 1993 / New Delhi)


On one moonless night
Decorated with lights
A Diwali candle is lit
To welcome someone home.
A tired body has returned
With some dreams abandoned,
To be embraced back by life,
Into a small world
That gives him the joy
That he searched in the corners of the world.

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.
