Treasure Island

Lenin Meitei Thingujam

(Imphal, Manipur)

TIME


Am I standing still on a moving train?
`Cause I see things passing me by before my eyes
Let me take a moment
I want to savour these dried roses

Should I wait for the next moment?
`Cause “This too shall pass”, the Sufis said
Let me wait a moment
The grass does look greener in the future

Caught between yesterday and tomorrow
I feel like a rubber band
Stretched beyond recognition-
A bridge between who I was and will be

I am well-rounded
How I am not supposed to roll?
Set me free, Oh Lord!
I want to be reborn everyday

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
