Treasure Island

A Phoenix Bird


A dream burns within a dream
In springtime, I saw how butterflies unclog her wings!
Aye, I stretched to grasp goatish love
I mislaid all my known ways for thee

New destiny is always wandering me,
One straight path to another meandering path-
As river flows from waterfall to ocean-
A twilight horizon to another dark horizon

Still I heard the very fast,
Vicious passing sound of my dream darling
My wounded orphan dream,
threw at recycle bin repeatedly-

Recycling- soul forces attract love's gravity,
twist heart and soul- again and again
Still strain to resurrect as a phoenix bird-

Poem of the Day

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
