Treasure Island

a love letter


I.

this flow between us
it is the stretch of muscles
burning from the undertow
we dive
deeper
deeper
until we sift
through passed words

weeping pearls

II.

drifting along
dual moons dance
wavering
until
finally
they surrender
at the mouth
of passion

III.

you hang
from crystalline canopies
reflecting upon the water
the path
to our heart

upon this mirror
hearts do not shatter

they pulse
and ripple
placidly
before
sinking

th ey will never know
the finality
of broken
glass

IV.

with joy
my heart sinks
until
it is swept along
with the rush
of your
blood

flowing
like sands behind
glass
moonlight passes
through my heart

in the end
i am washed up
along your shore
where you receive me
to carve our names
on the driftwood
i am

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
