Treasure Island

Tajudeen Shah


One Who has Lost All Three.

A poet was interviewed,
Of his latest collections.
Had his views well-expressed
Of his intimate reflections.

When asked of future plans,
Replied, “No plans for future,
As today is full of regrets;
Of yesterdays,
And of misgivings
Of unborn tomorrows”

Why should one plan
When all three is lost!

Poem of the Day

Friendship, as love, is but a name,
Save in a concentrated flame;
And thus, in friendships, who depend
On more than one, find not one friend.
