Treasure Island

Nkululeko Mdudu

(11 October 1990 / Queenstown/ South Africa)

Born Again......`t'h, e.n. Dead

Random Hearts
play in Drum's Dome
Waiting on Lyrics to come....
This be the Platform
whence they are Heard,
When none of them need say a Word.
Random child
there in your Mummified Tomb,
A Cold Contrast to Mother's Womb.
As farther you are from House,
As closer you are to Home.

    The heart's dome is the platform where only feelings like lyrics play the tune and no words are required to know another's sympathies. A cold heart sans love is a sealed existence from where the innocence is to escape to come home to dwell again. We have Mududu, we wishes, arya.......Your words are born again.......rise like the phoenix from the ashes of dead and angry thoughts.....arya (Report) Reply

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
