Treasure Island

Rajesh Thankappan

(Guwahati)

The Fort


With a certain thought
I built a mental fort
And fortified it further
With a deep, wide, moat.

A friend came knocking
A friendly thought,
But I dumped him blindly
In the deep, wide, moat.

No! my prejudiced mind
Was petrified like a stone
That if failed to recognize
What to accept or disown.

    A thought provoking poem. You have penned it very well. Some time it is very very difficult to recognise foe or friend. A fear in mind can make one feel all are foe, and these fear doesn't allow one to read a person and best friends are lost forever due to own mistake....Which is very sad. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
