Treasure Island

Ramdas Bhandarkar


Phoenix Of Self!

In this love,
The thirst of eternal love,
The hunger for knowledge,
The aspiration of wisdom.
Made respire not the air,
But that fire of longing!
When ever burning longing in heart,
When heart can't contain,
the stress,
Millions of nuclear bombs

That fire burnt all,
Ashes were residue only of
Only narrow and mean
terrestrial needs remain,
Start spreading in all world the perfume
As fumes of good deeds and
thoughts dispersed,
From that ashes the phoenix of
Self rose and flew high,
Covering all worlds under its wings glowing with Galactic brightness!

In flash of that blazing light,
I never found myself,
How can I be fond of myself,
The point circle,
when expanded into boundless,
or may lost, circumference melted,
I can't say it may be my sphere
of existence,
How can one imagine shape and
name of boundless existence,
Is this that, I was mad after in love,
Or is it that was making me mad
or created me and worlds?
Now madness came to end,
As time, space, thoughts,
knowledge, All lost in a flash of that light of
infinite wisdom!

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
