Treasure Island


(10-08-1976 / Mumbai)

The Ultimate Quest

On the sea shore at twilight,
Sun was sinking at horizon with crimson light
The carmine colour spread across the sky,
Roaring sea rose blatantly high
Birds were flying towards their nest,
My thoughts however did not rest
Mind was still aspiring for a quest
Quest for Love, Peace and Tranquil!
Searched in mounts, vales and isle
With this passionate quest I went in exile
This quest led me to distant lands
Alas! I returned empty hands
Sat down tepidly at the shore
Watching the brines roar
Soon the dark covered the sky
For a while sea became gentle and shy
Twinkling stars and the moonlit night
I stood as a witness for that amazing sight
Thoughts vanished with the gentle breeze
Heart danced along with swinging trees
I yearned long for this glorious moment
The ecstatic moment of enlightenment!
Now I realise, the nature of Existence,
Every moment she unveils her presence
But few only are wise to discover
Those fortunate souls becomes her lover
Even at this moment of the hour,
Eternal verities spreading like fragrance of a flower
Life is always here and now
Peace and tranquil follows love,
Peace and tranquil follows love!

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,
