Treasure Island

Neela Nath


Once Upon...


There was a cock and a hen
near our house....
Oh! Do you know the
story of the tricky mouse?

You know my heart....

Heart? My grandpa had
heart problem, I think
I told you last time...
My grandma's eyes always blink.

Just I want to tell how much...

How much? O it made me remember
the price of my T-shirt!
Thanks, thanks for reminding me,
I have to go City Mart!

Dear, listen my soul burns...

Burns? Why don't you go to doctor?
How, did it catch fire?
Does your mom know, or
you suppress it, you liar!

Sweet-heart, I have to leave now.

Go, go you must do your duty
first, and please, inform
me later about the condition
of your soul, cool or warm!

    Reading this poem is like looking into a reflecting pool and seeing your past and with a sweep
    of your hand stir the waters of the past and as the memories swirl around they surface briefly.
    And a kaleidoscopic effect of colors and emotions appears and we are transfixed briefly by what we see. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
