Treasure Island

Maria Barbara Korynt

close goodbyes

behind the third ocean it was miraculously
the life alone passed without pushing
making the bed gravel footpaths with white shadow
of box trees in length cut
on their background colour umbrella
it decorated grass green
flirting with blue of water like the painted flower
with bizarre colours gathered

from the rainbow ribbon stuck in my hair
your eyes as ever carefully expected
gathering clouds on my forehead
in order in time to save it what delicate
before the approaching storm
you weren't only able in them to stop lightnings
and me when I came back up to own wings
it was behind the third ocean better

now I am here where your music of words
for me is still heard even though surges
are carrying fleeting dreams more slowly
I feel the familiar smell
when a gentle puff of wind
is caressing my body
my world is one great ocean
I am not having to search more

a lot of of them these are departures
partings and retutrnings
how I will name it when you stay there far
and I won't manage to exceed
the fourth ocean
don't only forget to trim the lawn
and heart whether will withstand
when a half stays...

    Writing whom it isn't possible to imitate, although they were trying. It is possible only to do 'fragments'. It is necessary to feel such writing. Very beautiful. (Report) Reply

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
