A Deserted Island Poem by Nanthinii Mohan

A Deserted Island

Rating: 5.0


A lovely paradise - she once was.
With birds chirping all around,
Dolphins and whales singing for their mates.
Not even one storm that passed wrecked her;
But wretched now she looked.
The ripples that caressed, fondled and cuddled
Puzzled what tempest she went through?
Indeed the bygone best of times - she gasped.
That life was quite some sunshine!
When Venus always put a smile on her face,
To cure all those daunting nights
And all the miles of tire her straddles bore.
The sun added sparkles to all her daylight dreams.
In between stepped in -
The overprotective arch of love
In all its glorious mesh of colours - to somehow
Plead the heavenly pour to wipe away all her torments.
Coz, it's not the sunken mountains that weighed her down now,
But her sulking heart.
Oh! The wandering soul sought solace,
In between all the heaves of lustful wind and willful shores,
With the strangling past and gawking memories.
Never did she lose herself in vain
In all those inner battles all she sought was
Somebody - somebody she can call as her own.
She wailed in loneliness for one last time.
Before someone whispered, She's got a place for her.
And in one solemn tone - said She,
No one is ever really left astute -
When in Her arms, holds She all that deserted.

You showed an excellent and loveliest poem in your poetic words about a deserted island. The emotions meant are visible here and as we read your brilliant poem, we can touch that too. Are you comparing a deserted island with the human state? Or the many occurrences and changes in the universe? The pains and sufferings so well portrayed.

Thank you for your kind words. I tried to present a lonely woman as a deserted island. And yes Ms. Chan, you got me! ! I have compared the varied emotions a woman with the strange undercurrents of the island. Both are redeemed by Mother Nature, hence no man is an island.

Feelings are lyrical by nature, and you express them in your poem. When I write mine, I prefer to stay more close to reality and keep a watch on the connection with me. For instance, I would write as the first part: A lovely paradise, she was her words colourful birds chirping, her motions dancing around me as a dolphin mate and so on, combining human love with the Great Divine Mother
