Treasure Island

Pijush Biswas

(12 July,1988 / Srirampur, Nadia, West Bengal, India)

In a darkling night


I was walking through a road,
Diverged into two directions ahead
In a darkling and gloomy mood
Of the night, which threads
Both, hope and despair
In a pair.

I could not understand
Which direction I have to go
Right hand? or left hand?
I had to bow
Down my will before the growing gloom
Of the night in search of my doom.

I was perplex'd
And could not count
What direction to go
And thickness began to mount
Before I started to draw
Any trace of human being
And was shrunken my brow.

Suddenly, a lady with lamp
Coming towards my way
Chanted loudly by the name of Ram
As fear struck her heart
As the destination far away.

She comes closer to me
And a light of hope rose in mind
Which helped me to breathe free
A lady of grace, so kind
Asked me 'Lets go where to go'.

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.
