Treasure Island

sree Jothi


Waiting!


WAITING!
Isn't it what we are born for?
For something or somewhere!
From cradle to grave
Eternally seeking
And seemingly finding
Finding only to lose again!
Squeezing life out from!

Seconds pass into eternity
Memories evaporate like mist
The heart of time stops throbbing
Life pulsates at its lowest ebb
Lethargy waits at the door of death
The pale sun dies behind the crimson skies

The pain at the core of pleasure awakens
Spreads out her heavy wings of horror
The primordial loneliness
Yells for companionship
Emotions acquire poetic intensity
The ancient most mountains,
The forest, the cloud, and the seas
Remind our elemental union
They laugh asking for my companion
Then, shouts for you my bleeding heart
My sinking soul, my declining day
Where flickers my missing fragment?
My lamp of life
How many spheres apart?

Behinds the bars of earthly bonds
A Pale, voiceless, half dead,
The fading face of life
Somewhere in this universe
Helplessly eager
Joins me, as sure as love
If not as certainly as death!

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
