Treasure Island

Leslie Ching

(January 8,1995- / Toronto, ON, Canada)

The three greatest discoveries of humankind:

THE SONG
Melodic hums and trills of instruments
Clear notes of a silver flute
Sharps and highs of a sleek violin
Rumbles and booms of a deep base drum
Squeaks and blares of a golden trumpet;
Smoothed words of voice
Carrying with it the hearts
Of all who listen;

THE HAND-CRAFTED ART
Creamy paints spread across the canvas
In a rich, thick blend of colours
The smeared recreation of the rainbow
Portrayed upon an easel
Peace and tranquillity
Dark and unruly
A fruity candy to the eye
And a craving, longing for the soul;

and

THE WRITTEN WORD
Appeals to neither
The eye or the ear
But rather to both
And the learned mind
Which can produce
Its own pleasure;
More than just
Breathtaking scenes for the eye
And beautiful sounds for the ear...

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
