Treasure Island

Rozmanshah Abdullah

(30th October 1976 / Taiping)

Tree


That man
Sitting alone
Under a big tree
Waiting for the right moment
To feed on his intended prey

Along came a beast
In a deep thought
Fixating on its new found wisdom
Of discovering a blinking wood
Everytime it passes by
Under that big tree

But then
Mildew came gushing out
At one part of the tree
Couldn't contain itself
Fall to the ground

But the man and the beast
Unperturbed
Refusing to care
For it was just
An all day's life event

I

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
