Treasure Island

Meena Somasundaram


The Impermanence


The ship on the ocean
gliding along the waters
with a load of people
languishing in the upper deck
the cargo being heavy and hefty
stocked in the lower portion
with all the gaiety in the pavilion
with all dance and song in the top
the ship sailed with the serenity
unaware of the joy that was going on
and not knowing of the danger it would face
as there rose suddenly a storm violent
the waters turned turbulent
tossing the ship up and down
the captain stood pensive for a moment
then steered the ship in the opposite direction
steadily and carefully going to a safer arena
where the water remained placid and calm
till then there was a deadly silence inside
making everyone feel the insecurity it caused
that be the ways of nature greatly
indicating an impermanence and in a way the mortality.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
