Treasure Island

gajanan mishra

(3rd April 19sixty / Tikapali, Patnagarh, Balangir, Odisha, India now at Tapobana, Titilagarh, Odisha, India)

Short and long

Short and long
Nothing is there
You can say short
Or long.

No point to measure
Here or there
In upper or lower
In this fair.

You can express
Your desires
And you can enter
From any point near
Or there.

Mixed unmixed
You can find
That is fixed
In you in me.

If we wish
We can change
Anything at
Anytime but for why?

But for why
Is a question
To be ask within
And action be taken.

The action you have
And its effect
Should for common good
The Ultimate Truth.

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
