Treasure Island

A Mystery


You are the sun
You bring hope after the darkness of night
Light up my days with new beginnings 
Hold me in your rays of warmth
You are  the wind
Changeable always
You blow strong and weak
Surprising day to day 
You are  the rain
I need you to grow
Yet dampen my spirits
Nourishing, devastating
You are the ocean
Mysterious, deep
Tidal is your nature
Endless waves of emotion you bring
You are the tempest
Making me feel alive
Exhilarating, scary
Life on the edge
You are the moon
Waxing and waning
Peaceful, beautiful 
A wonder to me
You are the mountains
Formidable, grand
Standing before you
Entranced by your immensity 
You are the snow
Softly you fall about
Each part is different
Pure and driven
You are the trees
Shading me from hurts
Shedding again and again
Offering hope anew
You are the flowers 
Bright, cheerful
Many colors 
Change with the seasons
You are the mystery
Never revealing all
Keeping parts hidden
Holding me spellbound

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;
