Treasure Island

ANJALI KAKATI


“Lost path home”.


When you
Showed me the rainbow
For the first time,
I wished for a ladder
So,
I could reach up the clouds
Catch the rainbow,
And color my dreams
All red, blue, green and yellow.
You never brought me a ladder
I could never reach the clouds,
Catch the rainbow
And my dreams were never colored
Red, blue, green and yellow.

When I began the long walk
I wished for a hand
Which could hold mine
And steady me when I stumbled.
Caresses the bruises
When I fell.
The hand never appeared
I kept on stumbling,
Falling
And my bruises remained unattended for.
Ever hurting
Ever bleeding.

Today when
I feel all missing and lost
In this vast confusion
Called “life”.
I keep searching among strangers
A familiar pair of eyes
Who would lead me
To where I belong.
Those eyes never appeared
I am still lost
Still searching
For the
“Lost path home”.

I wish daddy
You should not have
Shown me the rainbow
So beautiful and colorful lot.

Poem of the Day

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
