Treasure Island

Kavya S Babu

The Exploration

Still now, but don't know why
I gaze up at the sky
and explore its mystery!

My envelope seems to move away
carrying with it my address,
my knowledge and my world too...

Stay at sight, the visible mystery
with its invisible truth and marvel
and I feel uprooted from this sphere.

Weightless, I am carried upwards and upwards
to the arena where soldiers and the captain
with their stones embedded Armour plates assemble.

Safeguarded, he sleeps there
with dreams of the next dawn
and schedule for the new day.

Wakes up, lends a day off
for the soldiers to rest
after the tiresome night.

Striding forth sights undiscovered
arose chaos never answered, suddenly!
encountered an intense light beam!

He might be there; the ultimate spirit
In a loneliness, undefinable
enlightening every life beneath.

'I won him', a false sense
shouts every instant of time.
still there were light-years to go!

Sensed a mere touch, a breeze...
The extracted soul attacked back.
A sudden trigger, eyes blinked.

Cautious of every move beside
with fear or something of the sort
'It's late night', I walked home...

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
