Treasure Island

Geetha Jayakumar

(Kerala Palakkad)

When Death comes knocking!


Death comes slowly
In silence
And pause at the door
No one hears it
Only the one who knows
Feels it
His door is knocked
Though he may be
Surrounded by
Near and dear ones
Or
May be all alone.

When Death come Knocking
And speaks in silence
All set to go, dear...
Don't take anything
With you
Leave your body and
Everything here.
But.....
Take out your soul
From
Deep within.
Come with me Soul
Let's fly away from here
Heavens door is waiting
To welcome you dear.

When death comes knocking
Only once in lifetime,
Whether you want or not,
It can enter anywhere and anytime.
Its his choice
To whom
He should knock.
I don't know
When I will be his choice
Am waiting for him dearly!

    And when he comes knocking
    Be civil to Him
    Praise his buffalo
    The crown of horns
    The big fat belly
    Then argue your point
    That his scroll may be wrong
    And that the dates are mixed up
    And possibly its the wrong address
    Point out your quarrelsome neighbour
    And may be, may be He
    A bit confused can go back
    With that horrid roll of rope and sack.... (Report) Reply

    When death comes knocking, one must be ready. Do the things you want to accomplish. Let nothing be left to say i am not done yet. Beautiful poem. Thank you. (Report) Reply

    Death is the inevitable and inescapable reality of life! It is so near, but we like to imagine, it is so far! I wonder, if it has the glow of a sunset! A beautiful poem, Geetha! (Report) Reply

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,
