Treasure Island

Subashini Ravichandran

Turn Over A New Leaf

I sit down, I pace around
I close my eye lids
waiting for the day to end

Unwinding the hours that passed
The pauses and the fast forwards
fail to recognize the despair

leaving them to pile
cluttering the heart
and crushing the pipes

Take another stage, better times
it may seem pumped up,
too trivial to ponder on

But here and now, in the midst of
exits and pricks, where the lost
or the uncertain hold any spell
only the darkness lingers on

Now when the moon hides
behind the mysterious clouds
I await a miracle named tomorrow
to cradle in when the light appears

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,
