Treasure Island

Ahmad Shiddiqi

(March 7,1974 / Semarang, Central Java, Indonesia)

Cave


(dedicated to Georgia Girl)

I sit down and watch Oprah program
Tenderly thousands of torches fly high
Who’s embracing homeless children?
Mermaids seduce iceberg to melt down
Fountains of Frankfurt smile to us
My best regards to blind ravens

(inspired by Rolling Stones’ Start Me Up)

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
