Treasure Island

Peter Vealey

(16th March 1952. / Hertfordshire)

A precise art?

That place we were.
How right it seemed then.
The look, the feel of each other.
A precise art?
Flawed by time.
So now sadly out of
Rhyme and communication.
Memories captured
Somewhere in time.
A hidden pain, an unrecognised crime
Of betrayal.
Who's to blame?
This precise art of lovin'
Is never known.
Two minds in synchronicity,
Or in different worlds of relativity?
The ongoing reality of life.
What was that?
Oh just a scientist's thesis on relationships.
A precise art or another fools'
Falling love dart.

    I gave this a 9 because it is both creative and extremely well written. This
    writer is among the best I have read here. This piece is quite unique because
    it is not creative just to be so. It is genuine in origin. It comes directly from
    his mind without searching.Fabulous!

Poem of the Day

poet James Whitcomb Riley

When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock
And you hear the kyouck and gobble of the struttin' turkey cock
And the clackin' of the guineys, and the cluckin' of the hens
