Treasure Island

Tirupathi Chandrupatla


Mammoth Billboard


Mammoth billboard
Towering in the sky

Rising sun

Golden clouds

Wonderful birds
That fly

Treetops
With buds of spring

The whole panorama

Obscured from view.



The message's
Clear and bold

Passing it for
The umpteenth time

Triggers the subconscious

A beautiful damsel
Ever smiling says

'Try casino for luck'
Mega-million mania
Gambling all
The life’s earnings
Triggers the mind.



Oh! Mighty billboard

Foundation and the structure

Multi-storied marvel

Announcing man's triumph

Nature hides in shame

And I wonder

What an achievement!

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
