Treasure Island

Amitava Sur

(20.01.1950 / Kolkata)

They all left the park


Jesus was with Mohammed in a park near the lake
Buddha, Confucius and Mahabir Jain
Were sitting on another bench,
Eating some ground nuts, peeling off their shells.

Buddha said ' Hey Jesus - so long where had you been'
Smilingly he replied ' I was with Mohammed,
in his house during the last two days '
Mahabir was asking ' Hey - Confu, where is Hu En Sung'
' Taking a little more time to carry his own chair'.

All those friends were in a laughter
And welcome Hu En Sung.
They sang some light songs
Clapping and dancing together.

All the people, being gathered around them
Were humming with delight in a smiling face.
People around were of different color and beliefs
The park was filled with tranquility and peace.

Sun is set, darkness loomed
Silence is hovering around,
They all left the park.
The park is now in deep dark.

    What a way to usher in the creation of your 150Th poem you let it fill the sky with a big bang of fireworks! ! This is a universal sentiment that echoes throughout the pages of time. This story is the vision that these men had all from different walks of life but connected through something greater than themselves. Love, unity and acceptance are the forces that bind. Very nicely done in this poem. I give this a 10+ just in the message alone. Allan Gerard~ (Report) Reply

    A panacea is offered for a universal ailment through this poem which is a fruit of the fertile and heated imagination of a philanthropic mind. Congratulations on sharing 150th poem today, one can feel the sense of achievement Amitava Sur ji...best regards! (Report) Reply

  • Valsa George (7/22/2014 3:07:00 AM)

    All religions preach universal brotherhood and all true prophets emphasize on the need to be bonded together, breaking the narrow boundaries of caste, creed and religion! Love should be the binding force!

    So you have brought together all great souls under one parasol! ! More commendable is the light air you have created. I nstead of making them preach great moral principles, you let them eat pea nuts, crack jokes, sing and dance.... Yes, such light moments lift the burden off life....!

    Congratulations on reaching this milestone! Conquer still greater heights, Amitava! Best of Luck! ! (Report) Reply

    Amitava, I enjoyed how you brought these great and wise men together and put them on a human level i.e. talking and eating some nuts, enjoying one another's company. Their conversation was humorous and enlightening, singing, laughing, dancing like ordinary people. All religions together in eternity or heaven (the park) a peaceful happiness, the darkness felt serene, all wise men working together for mankind. A really great poem, Amitava.
    Thank you for all the wonderful comments you gave on the poems you read recently, I totally appreciate them. Congratulations Amitava on your 150th poem! ! ! ! I knew you would do great! ! RoseAnn (Report) Reply

    Man can not live in peace unless the society is socially controlled. Almost all the sociologists believe that religion is the strongest device of social control. Religion is not an opium for the society it is a law that is backed by our belief. God is same, destination is same but there are many routes and all lead to eternity.I am hopeful that a time will come when all the moderate members of PH will sit in the beautiful park of eternity where there will be no dark and where there will be lasting light of eternity.
    I congratulate my dear friend Amitava for writing and uploading his beautiful 150th poem. (Report) Reply

    Really, Amitava, I never thought so many great and wonderful people could come together...Yes, I can imagine the kind of peace and happiness that would prevail whenever this happens... (Report) Reply
