Treasure Island

Padmanabhan Ananth

This, Perhaps, Is Me!

A Gemini, who's fine faulting his birth star
For his ever-shifting preference and desire!

A dad, who would want to spend 'quality time'
With daughters but’d 'miss the bus', then whine!

A doer, who cannot well draw thick line
Between work-n-life, so’d hanker for proportion.

A friend, whose buddies live so far away
That he gives-n-gets little time from each guy.

A spouse, his wife always seems to desire
That he does change at least a wee bit for better!

A son, whose father has had many a difference
Simple or ideological, and most yet to harmonise.

A son, whose mother believes he's her fame
Has to be, because he does bear her dad’s name!

A sibling, who has varied brothers-n-sisters
Some show love, others wonder how, perhaps!

A poet, who’s now seeking 'verses' for poem
Because that's what has been the prediction!

A lover, of travel, trivia, food, movies, music
With desire to draw out of life, its very essence!

A soul, who’s seeking to find life's purpose
So is searching inside-n-out and this is him, perhaps!

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
