Treasure Island

Gangadharan nair Pulingat..

The visitor

Death an inevitable life event
No one can escape.
Whatever one earns no matter
Death is there; the day is a mystery
Let it may come and face with brave.

But death is most difficult to contain
when it threatens the little lives
caught in the hands of dreadful ailments
Which have no sufficient medicines.

Death difficult to adjust
when it is the case of a child
In fact death is unwanted guest there
Where it makes sadness to all.

Death in suicide cases
Can't be accused as a wrongdoer
There death is a special invitee
irrespective of its interest or neglect.

Death, face the challenges of it
Life is the real thing to listen
Where more things we have to do
Death, may it take its own course and time.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
