Treasure Island

Subrat Pradhan


Love Apple


The apple was yet to be red
Yet some tasted it
It tasted sour to some
And mixed to some
There were so many
Waiting for the apple
To be red.
When the apple turned red
Some tried it
Some joined in a hurry
Some in light some in darkness
Never the less
The apple grew bigger and bigger
And turned red and more red
Day by day
People increased in number
Eating, tasting
Coming and going
Making their own judgements
Once for all.
They kept on going down the hill
For all time to come.

    Good example of positive reenforcement using the
    deeper shade of love as an analogy of how we perceive
    and share love. (Report) Reply

Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
