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 Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
