Treasure Island

Gabriela Duricova

(22.5.1984 / Bratislava)


You didn't know you were waiting for me
Coming like a ghost of the morning
Right through the mist blurring your sight

You were sipping your coffee
As if freshly awakened - smile on your face
Your mind still dreaming

Trying to embrace some colourful explosion
A carnival taking over the streets, soul of autumn
Feast of a year slowly approaching its end

I didn't know I was looking for you
Making my way through haze and silence
Turmoil and noise of the new day tracking my steps

But I just laughed into their face
My feet were light, for my spirit was too
I turned around and there was you

In the morning sun at the cafe
The butterfly of your eyes fluttered
Over the bench of lips - and I took a seat

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;
