Treasure Island

Hasan Haskovic

(30.12.1997 / Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina)

Artless


Once there was color in the sky
In melody of the breeze
Symphonies unheard would resound
The horizon was more than a myth
More than just propaganda
More than just this

Back to when there was a basis
For trust and for belief
But that was way before
Faith was just a book
In resplendence of forgotten faces
Lies a long lost youth
And in the song of the trees
Lies a long lost truth

Where is the melody?
Where is the color?
Where is the truth?
Long lost, long lost
And what is left is
Just a field picked of flowers
Covered in grey, calloused grass
A world artless and void
Left to imprison lonely souls
Beneath skies of breaking glass

But there I live
And here I am
Seeking the melody
Touching the color
Living the truth
But I too will ebb away
Along with the inevitable
Along with lost youth
Beneath skies of breaking glass
I seek the flowers in the grey grass
I seek the truth

And I live the artless ending
No dispute

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;
