Treasure Island

Neela Nath


I mmutable is this magnificent world!
N egative power seldom works.
V ice is not the only herald,
E nthues us to change our tracks.
N ecessity is not the utmost thing,
T rust can easily kneel before him.
I ntention must never bring,
O ne's doom to fulfill his whim.
N umbskull can't break mystic's dream!

    That is such a technical display, showing in the territories of poetry, and who else could be doing that? .. One of my favourite lady poets, I sincerely respect the value that you keep bringing to the world of written word

    Wow, nice creativity! a great invention! i couldn't find INVENTION in my first try, but it was there.
    necessity isn't the utmost thing, trust can easily kneel before him awesome line.
    i liked the way poem described 'invention'.there are lines telling what a great invention is.there are some great ones while some are catastrophic.but a true invention is never made for the doom of others. (Report) Reply
