Treasure Island

gajanan mishra

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

The sea is trembling

The sea is trembling and
this state of trembling
made me fear and I sing a song
with care that you can hear there.

Am I the initiator here?
Initiator of the wave? or the sky?
You have declared to stay away from me
But I have seen you and you have provided
me the eyes to sea all scenes.

With his shadow the neem-tree
is telling the history and
without the shadow the tree is
in love. The truth-bird is there
sitting quiet without body on the shore.

    I sing a song with care that you can hear there, when I am in fear and I sing a song when I am happy but I sing songs for you far away from you; You have to listen undoubtedly: - Sushil Kumar Tripathy, Sonepur (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Walt Whitman

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
