Treasure Island

Bhavani Polimetla


I am the witness


Woke up in the morning
Looked at the sun rays
They touched warmly
Reminded me that the day started
I am the witness when day begins

Opened the windows
Touched by cool breeze
Felt little bit cold
Reminded me that
Warm and cold are following each other

The day passing slowly
Looked at the news
Watching the people around
Happiness, Sadness,
Illness, Hunger, frustration,
Disappointment, lot of feelings
Flooding this world
People are bathing in it
Swimming through them
Fighting with strong currents
Stand at the riverbank as witness
And I have only one question
All are this what for?

The day is passing
Sun is falling
Shadows are growing
Darkness is flowing
When day is ending
We are not crying
We know that tomorrow will come again
God created beautiful cycle
Day after night
Night after day
Recession after stability
Stability after recession
Crying after laughter
Laughter after crying
Standing in the midst
Observing as witness

The day is ending
Life is passing
Waiting for God
To witness his presence

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust

And pays us but with earth and dust;
