Treasure Island

Daniel Trevelyn Joseph

(21 December 1945 / Mumbai, India)

September


Only in West, March heralds the Spring.
Let me sing to this month of September:

Here this month in India, dragonflies crowd
Green leaf-tops of some acacia trees;

Butterflies then are a-plenty this time
Wave-twisting their way, circling each other:

To eat and mate being their vocation:
Of course, that is our awareness at work.

That we derive reckless joy watching them
Is not known to them – that is what I think!

Monsoon magic descends this month too with
Rain-clouds, not reflected down in glistening patches:

Making me swear that breezy September
I love best in Mumbai, my belov’d City.

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,
