Treasure Island

indira babbellapati

(visakhapatnam, india)

insomniac senryu(s)


insomniac nights
torturous play-field
of body and brain

insomniac wounds
fade at day light
muster strength for night

body numb
mind agitated
nagging nights

night long
ghost-shadows on brain-walls
sleeplessness reigns

dogs and frogs
wail and croak through staring nights
haunting insomnia

through the dark nights
a toothless grin flashes
sleep at hide and seek

sun light dilutes
restless nights
unique strategy!

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
