Treasure Island

malini kadir

(17th october / Nagapatinam, a coastal port, Tamilnadu, India NOW RESIDING IN TRICHY)

Where are you?

Where are you?

Where are you?

Calls out this heart

Flying about in busy business

Letting your rose unattended wilt

Is it fair; ever fair your highness?

The busy bee it tangent flew

past the bunch of fresh roses

youth and freshness

Pervaded his nostrils

making him pause...........

But in this air conditioned room space

Space for this romantic at heart! !

It was a meet of spirited spirits in quest....

Where the languor of the finer emotions?

Busier than bee! !

Busier than million ants.....In team venture
Had he any time for her? ?

The skies are fading into night
Heart is sagging
Loosing its battle with the Tears
Strong and steady spilling
To fill the space
To add chill to bones
Already with neglect left cold! !

    Very artfully elaborated the fading human emotion through
    beautiful metaphors. The worsening condition of a sagging
    heart indicates that how slowly but progressively time has
    started to deteriorate the liveliness of life..........10/10 (Report) Reply

    despite the annoying attention grab of the exclamation marks used in the title, I found that I rather enjoyed this poem (Report) Reply
