A journey with a lantern


This lantern that stays still, took me around a river bank,
Where a half broken vessel is floating
without knowing which direction to proceed 




No traveler to be seen,
walking or viewing, 
Yet,
The ashore is stronger
And
Lengthy
calm and quite



The kadolana of memoirs  
Pulling me backward
Taking me forward along an old thought lane 
A couple sipping a cup of coffee 
A little beyond the ashore
a baby reading a book lying on a mat
In another moment 
the same
walking along the isolated ashore 




What has happen to my thoughts?
No thoughts to travel any further
Th river bank has disappeared
from the ashore of my imagination 

Unfortunate isn't it?

Is the lantern lit above, 
of pale flame 
has enough strength left 
to farewell the darkness ? 


Have I become a traveler, who have got no match stick to eradicate darkness of life?
Have I become a beggar of No thoughts?
No money to travel?,
Poor in Brain Cells,?
Narrower in Ideas,?

What does this lantern revels?
Who has lit it before?
Perhaps a man who have not met Thomas*?
A man of light (modern)
