Treasure Island

Masiela Lusha

(23 October 1985-? / Tirana, Albania)

Drinking the Moon


I have planned and dreamt of this trophy of gold,
The halo of silver, around in which it molds.
I have cradles this idea and nursed it to true plan,
I have fed it seeds of confidence, O this is so grand!

How lofty atop your kingdom's throne you rest,
Pray, dim these stars, for (alone) your grace shines best.
No cloud can cloak your clean face of white,
For however masked, somehow, somewhere, you glow so bright!

You have marked your loyal entrance through water and sky,
I cannot quite reach you, but by me you lie.
A bed of water, I have crafted for you,
So near me you lay when I dream of us two.

    Your moons ora I have drank
    It sits soft at the center of my soul
    Where the rivers do meet
    Where the constant dream flows (Report) Reply

    When I read this I can see the full moon reflecting off the glassy surface of still waters. The poem is also metaphorical and sings of promise. Elegant poem. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
