Treasure Island

Tajudeen Shah


The Quest Started Since

The first morn’s yellow flames pulsated
Over the sliver sky’s infinite flank.
Adam, the blessed father of mankind,
Opened his wheat-toned eye lids;
Garnished with golden lashes,
And the delicate membrane gave way
To the heavenly light and air to begin
Their mission in due skill with senses!
Proclaiming and praising the splendor
Of The Merciful, and expressing gratitude
Did he bow on the season-less ground,
While The Bountiful had his mastery
Explained to the Angels and ordered
To prostrate before His new creation!
All, save Satan, did instantly obey the Lord,
While the soothing glory of the lofty house
Witnessed that ecstatic occurrence ever;
Though the epic malice unto man
Was instilled by the Outcast,
Man’s Quest had its run ‘ON’ since then.

    Satan grew jealous of the honour and glory given to man and against God's command he showed his unwillingness to prostrate before him! However Satan's malice spilled over and finally succeeded in tempting man to disobey God and thereby depriving him of his bliss. Man's search and his quest after the lost bliss has thus begun from the beginning of creation and goes on relentless!

    Beautiful description of Adam coming into wakefulness and beholding the splendour of everything created for him! Great write, Tajudeen! (Report) Reply

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;
