Treasure Island

Khairul Ahsan


Just...


Just a spark can kindle a fire
That can consume a forest,
Just a touch can spark a lust
And create a Mount Everest.

Just a whisper into the ears,
Can stop a baby from crying,
Another kind can send a man
Atop the Himalayas flying!

Just a smile can change a thought
It can untie the toughest knot,
It can mean a signal shot,
To make a cold bed sizzling hot.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Just a smile, a look, a touch, a teardrop, a sigh, a whisper or even a thought may evoke far reaching consequences. Deep emotional transformations can be brought about by just any one or more of these.
