Treasure Island

Edgar Rendon Eslit

(August 21,1971 / Iligan City)

Analemma Solstice


Speak not the language of the villain
for this is not the end
Silence has brought to its find
for I remain mute till summer
begins

What’s so important about Alcatraz?
History has spoken albeit renowned
like Bataan has fallen in deep sleep
In total chaos graffiti and croquet
hold down

Styx favors no compassion
where Achilles, Agamemnon and Centaur
roared as brave yet devoured
Are they not mighty alright?
Think of what remains

Silence
Ponder
Distorted
Thy midst, hear the Saga
Outbreak doubly spoken

Humongous blasphemy so real
In the land of the living
Everything nay as if nothing
yet conceptual, bold, sarcastic
spare not in liquid methane

Equatorial axis demises
Albeit Supernova confides inept delusion
Starry illation foretold deeply sated
Wishful heart in motion
driven in waning gibbous

Venus let go
Unearth thy heart obliquely shaken
Gomorrah, Zion not Babylon
in Nassau lights
unleash my contemplation

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;
