Treasure Island

Alan Kabanshi


Catching feelings


Diamonds that shine brighter than stars
Brightens a heart in a soul with firm, yet falls
And weak I come in a heap
In memories scared by loves whip

Restrained to dream am crippled
But in latent of gold her shadows fall
Enriching tender dreams
To heal experiences and foretell changing tides
Forfeiting dreams in its veiled belief
Aligning to catch feelings

A mind trapped in differing reflections and ignorant in the morrow
Leaves me trapped in the midst of joy and growing sorrow
Yet am catching feelings in faith of its tune
Dwelling in captivity of a heart, killing reason in loves faith

More to my fears seethe
Yet rousingly it presses to hasten
‘Stab it.’ says I, ‘and kill the beat’
Lamentably, all in tireless effort
I fail to avoid catching her feelings
And her love for me is renewed
life what a wonderous woman

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;
