Treasure Island

Taher Shemaly

(17/8/1980 / Kuwait)

Dim


dim lights, dim street
and dim hearts walk along
deaf ears, deaf walls
and a world of not a song
grey matter of no color
quiet, no right or wrong

sleep or awake
calm or a quake
flying or wingless
a spirit so hopeless
here or there
any time, any where

but when a ray comes
from a sun or a moon that is
bring your cup and enjoy
the game of the sweet bless
and give a smile away
now or then, with carelessness

walk around O wanderer
walk and give a smile so slim
smile and live, take or give
smile amid the faces so grim
though it is heavily dark
though it might be so dim

Poem of the Day

Far south the lift,
