Treasure Island

John G. Nelson

(August 24,1976 / Monrovia, Liberia)

Beautiful butterfly


A beautiful butterfly flies high above.
It gracefully emits, warm rays of love.
flies & swings its wings, like a dove.

beautiful colours, it glitters like gold
Sweet, calm, sweet message it holds
Warm, tender it’s lights never grow old.

It opens it wings & makes day brighter.
It sends sweet rays, makes heart lighter.
it breathes love, to make faces softer.

It warmly charms hearts, soul & minds,
cheerful smile, merit in it wing you’ll find.
The purest flush in it’s eyes wink so kind.

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;
