Treasure Island

Aftab Alam

(15 th April 1967 / , , RANCHI,)

Love is everywhere


Something was going on
Seen from my blurred eyes
Strata of many ages
In segmentation they chaired

Debate was going on
Topic was Love
Each stratum defined love
According to their age
I stood a little far from them
Alone..

One of them noticed me
And called, went near to them
For them I was new


Among them offered me to say
Something about Love

I told them
All defined love according to taste
That is the best
I’ll tell the rest

Love is like a tree
Worry free
Root, trunk leaves.flower
Fruits and the birds that sing
Travelers that seat and rest and breathe
As we are sitting now
The breeze they play with trees
In fact
Love is everywhere
From root to soot.

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
