Treasure Island

vidyut chakraborty

(4th.November 1952 / kolkata/India)


I search the network,
Find ‘retirements’ in a stereo type pattern.
My daughter exclaimed “Retirement “!
She sent a photo of a wrinkle-faced woman
wearing a serene smile,
God knows her age, climbing hill shouldering
a lot of firewood.
She shoot the granny at Darjeeling Hills.
Each of the ladies taught me a lesson.
I remembered Paulo Coelho -
'In magic and in life - there is only the present moment, the now '.
Why should I waste time to fathom Time?
Why do I think of not doing the deeds still undone?
People moves fast, grows and develops,
leaving behind a spectacular kaleidoscope
and say- Time passes by.
No retirement, no stop, it is only a superannuation.
I shall grow further, develop to its peer,
Work is the Mantra of Life.
In reality -
the journey begins from mother’s womb
and finishes to the dust.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
