Treasure Island

Bashyam Narayanan

We can also fly

A winter afternoon
Just snowed and
Everything white everywhere

I was waiting in one of the busy
Airports of United States of America
To board a flight to New York

Delayed flights
I was wandering in the lounge
Afternoon turning to twilight
So soon, was my wonder

Checking in,
Security checks
Calling people by name to board
All were busy

And I was waiting for
The announcement for
Boarding my flight
Overlooking the aircrafts
And people boarding thereon
Through the tall glass panel

And I happened to see
Two sparrows
Chasing one another
And perching on cables
And wires those were running along
The walls of the lounge

Did I hear them talking
It looked like that

One sparrow telling
'Why they are so busy'
The other answering
'They have rescheduled
Most of the flights and
They are trying to accommodate
Everything within a particular time'
'Oh, I see.
But how come they are not taking
A note of us'
'Why should they take a note of us'
'Because, we can also fly'
'You only can fly
But they make others too fly'

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
