Treasure Island

Dr. Ramesh Chandra Mukhopadhyaya

(11-02=1947 / Belur Howrah West Bengal India)

I saw a very old man


I saw a very old man very old indeed

older than any man

older than the hills and the seas

older than the planet earth to be sure

and who knows
it was he per haps

who witnessd the big bang

The sun and moon are his eyes

one is aburning in a huff

another is mellowed with mercy and kindness

and the, mans matted hair is hardly visible

T he astronomers may have seen it inthe vision of

the G reat Attractor

Everyone can find the old man

particularly when a cloudladen sky isrocked by an angry storm
