Poetry Drawer: An Islet by Sushant Thapa 

My brick home of tough times
Looks like
My miniature islet.
Like some fantasy lovers
Dancing under the whole stranded sky
My miniature of an islet home
Has no address.
I cannot whisper my ill wind of ease
To my miniature islet home.
I admire members under its roof
The love is danced,
The love is greeted,
Love is treated.
To a remembered beloved
I address my islet.
One home I should build
For Imagination,
I often knock its door
Where my imagination wakes up,
Becomes a task doer,
Makes the world fitted in a room
More spacious.
But I want to walk in my garden!
