# An Island Within- Tanka

Rating: 2.6

Can I lie dormant
As tulip bulb in winter
To hibernate,
And come up feeling better,
Spread joy in good weather.

To pass the winter season in domestic seclusion Humans too do have to Hibernate... With a great hope of summer To Blossom with colours... There are many in such an Island of seclusion I wish a wonderful come back in the days ahead To the main land...with those powers they preserved. I love this word 'Hibernate' very much Thank you dear poet For that wonderful word Being presented so magestically.

Yes, surely you can! With the coming of Spring, there is an upsurge within; like many re-births, as we remain on this earth! -Raj Nandy
