Treasure Island

Elena Sandu


..Pardon?


What is that sound?
The subway train?
The people's rush?
No, those are very quiet
comparing with the silent shouts
of hearts bursting of love!
Between cracks, I hear the warmest voice:
Don't keep inside: let out, share!
Then, comes an echo..
.. from here, and there..

-Pardon! ? !
-How?
-When?
-To whom?
and..where?

    Elena....
    if linguists frown not
    I hold this name out
    to tyrants to armies
    with daggers of madness drawn
    Elena... I shall whisper to
    disease and hunger and mistrust
    and with these offering
    I shall seek
    to become barrier (though meek)
    amidst strong and weak
    a living breathing apology
    for sins I never did

    Dear friend, what a great philosophy of life you have captured in these great lines! Pardoning makes life relaxed and it is a solution for ever haunting evil- hateredness. I really relaxed while reading this beautiful poem.Marks 10 Rekhamandagere (Report) Reply
