Treasure Island

Ipshita Chaki


Incarcerated!


Lessons to learn, words to speak

Enlightenment in thy abode I seek,

But why in my mundane earthly need-

My captive soul has to pay heed?



Regrets spill from my evening tea-

As I realise where I want to be,

I miss thy warmth, thy sun, thy river

And only in silence I saddle, I shiver!

poet Robert Louis Stevenson

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
