Treasure Island

Amy Marie

(July 13,1992 / United States)

Birth of Originality

Satin-like – her wing
Breaks out of her mother.
She begins to drink the sunlight
Like a bottle.
A bottle of the mind.

But Destiny had jumped –
Died by way of his son –
The sensual evening before.
Before the birth.
The birth of Originality.

Destiny now stares through
Nothing in the
Silver soothing grave.
But in such a mind

May let her feminine growth be witnessed.
Witnessed like a marriage
Or not witnessed like an almost marriage.
With Imagination's shiny eye
Or story-showing mirror.

An eye
to camera-record the truth.
A mirror
To decorate it with Creativity's nurturing touch.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
