Treasure Island

indira babbellapati

(visakhapatnam, india)

your eyes

in the seas of your eyes
i see the reflection of
the sun rise and
the sun set
at the same time
i also see the sparkling high tide
of a full-moon night
and splinters of glassy waves
of a bright summer day
i see the mysterious depths
of the sea i can never negotiate
hidden behind the fluidy veil
that protects the whites of your eyes

i stroll along
the enigmatic
sands of your shore
at all times of the day
and the night

    Lucky you, the poet, who can see two seas and the sun rise and the sun set at the same time looking into someone's eyes! Beautiful poem! (Report) Reply

    I often wondered why does a portrait look empty even though the frame is filled with the subject. Professional photographers always tell me that its the eyes that tells the story. Mostly shooting bespectacled subjects causes the glare to washout their eyes.

    Loved this poem not only for its artistic projection but also for its message that justifies the above problem. Thanks a lot!

    You see everything in 'eyes'; but as you stroll along the sand on the sea shore...? ? ? to me, merger is not compete, indira.....otherwise how can you be subjective n objective? ? ? Or is it the case of vivid imagination; sort of possessed n obsessed....; sort of, being in trance..? ? ? (Report) Reply

That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
