Treasure Island

gajanan mishra

(3rd April 19sixty / Tikapali, Patnagarh, Balangir, Odisha, India now at Tapobana, Titilagarh, Odisha, India)

The River Ganga


O my Holy deity
O my Ganga Mata
You rise from the Himalayas
The Gangotri Glacier
And drains one fourth of
India's territory
You are flowing through
The most fertile and
Densely populated regions
Your basin support
Hundreds of millions of people
The Gangetic plain
Cradle of successive civilization
You are travelling
Two thousand five hundred ten km
And empty yourself
In to the Bay of Bengal
O my deity save me save me.

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,
