Treasure Island

Kesav Venkat Easwaran

(June 5th / Palghat- Kerala- India)

*Window (Free Verse)


The raindrops started leaving the eves-line
A window opened on the facing line

I found them all alone inside four walls
The breeze carried to me their words- no brawls

Did he ask her nobody loved him why?
Did she keep silent? Few moments passed by

(I saw a lightning splash in the sky)

Did he repeat, on this earth so, why?
Did I find her look deep into his eyes?

(I heard a thunder roll down the sky)

Did she ask him if he recognized a heart?
Did I find his eyes pierce her heart apart?

(I heard a hooligan wind pass by)

The rain suddenly started pouring high
The window and the words got liquefied

I switched off the screen
Locked the window inside
To retain the impact
Of the storm behind

    I read this poem again and I can't stop my remark; isn't it the least strange if not a bit scary when we can feel the nature more than alive, but clearly talking to us? ! It is not the fact that the nature talks scary but the fact that we understand it. (Report) Reply

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;
