Treasure Island

hasmukh amathalal

(17/05/1947 / Vadali, Dist: - sabarkantha, Gujarat, India)

Worthy child

I knelt down to bow head
Towards sky and tried to read
The mystery of hanging starts
Without support and distance very fat

There may be some reasons behind
Else sun will not be time bound and kind
He will never change his position
Let earth have her own disposition

I wondered about living being
Countless insects, animals and birds
Billions of human lives on earth’s surface
Is it not sufficient to bring smile on face?

Keep in mind one thing for sure
Food for all living beings is assured
He provides for and keeps no one hungry
So we have named him “savior and almighty”

Despite known fact that he is invisible
We are bent upon creating troubles
We catch the moment to define rich and poor
White is preference and black is shown door

Let people think in their own way
The belief and faith is just for us to obey
If you have set mind for one angle
Observe it honestly but make not others to struggle

He is happy only when we move orderly way
Maintain peace live brotherly in shining day
Prayers at holy places has no meaning
If we fail to feel peace in the evening

Nights offer us time to look back and think
What did we do in day time to sink?
If it was really honest and praise worthy
Think of moment that you are worthy child of almighty

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson


"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
