Treasure Island

Prasad Natarajan

(April 2nd 1983 / Bangalore)

Rainforest Queen

Rainforest Queen

While the world is still oblivious to the breaking light,

She casts her misty veil across the mighty Shola trees,

Moon beam is fleeting, while Venus is blinking bright,

She glides whispering sweet fragrance through the breeze,

Whistling away in admiration, those wings in the dense,

Flaming radish crown of a pecker glowing at your glance,

Pebbles clashing for your embrace, ripples are tense,

Over the thick branches a Langur dancing in wild trance,

Burrowing webs awaiting her new visiting foolish mate,

An orange Scarlet flashing his breast behind the green,

Watching her moves the dwarf fisher on water skate,

She disappears at the first light, the rain forest queen.

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
