Treasure Island

vinodkumar kizhakeveetil


The Train


Connecting cross-section of people,
Connecting places,
Melancholic farewells, rapturous unions
With deep sigh it brings.

Pastures, rivers, seas call,
Hillsides, peaks, and skies call,
Farewell to thee
Nay, songs of thine farewell ringing-
in my heart,
Farewell, farewell, farewell;


Distance covered in no time,
Space lost in no time,
It propelled civilization,
The ship that crawled on land.

    This is a statement about the role of the train. It played a significant one indeed.
    I recommend it because it yields information in a delightful way.

In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
