Treasure Island

Zero empty

We Tumble

People keep tumbling
along a non uniform gradient
trapped in it perpetuality
unknowingly by random selection
made to appear like a linear correlation
selected few sampled
and rest trampled
under the farce of survival of fittest

Chaotic behavior of gradient
Is hidden in the shadows
and masks of propaganda and ad films
blind our eyes and drug our curious minds
colorful hoardings captivate the dancing clowns
even crows laugh in harmony
and they unfailing decorate the statutes
of prominent public figures with their shit

mother earth wails
she cries through cyclones
her tears travel as tsunamis
her body shivers through tremors
and earthquakes she can explode
yet she tolerates and shows mercy

today no sparrows chirp around
bluish green humming bird
stay with me as vivid memories
people around me have increased
yet I have no company

equality and liberty remains
in statues writings and books
natures brings stability
by increasing entropy
through diversity
but we counteract through
controlled thought
though this world is for all
through bubbling fears of insecurity
we inherently compete
to own something which does not
belong to one at all
and we name it our property

Poem of the Day

poet William Wordsworth


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:
