Treasure Island

mina lotfi

an old man

an old man
a bare house
the big one, the red rose
cherries, and a pool
no water, no children
next door is a road
wet eyes waiting
simple house, simple heart
water drop, a table cloth
a bread, a chees, a date
and a wall...
over there a happy child
again an old man
alon with stick
it is my picture on water
which is crying silent and lonliness
a garden again cherries and rose
an old man is waking
it is end of his dream.

    but it creates a fab effect and lends so much meaning to the poem at many levels.
    loved reading it
    be happy

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
