Treasure Island

Jonathan Karanja

(Nairobi)

Earth, Moon & Ocean (V)


Swirling, white as foam, whoosh! swish!
Eddying, tossing and ebbing at every pull and push,
Of earth’s natural satellite, which around earth revolves,
So does the mighty ocean and her currents,
To moon’s gravitational pull respond as earth twirls,
Spinning, rotating on its own axis as the Great Deep swirls,
This same ‘Deep’ teems with many creatures,
Flying fish, octopus, saw-fish, plankton to name just a few,
Of these magnificent, abundant, lovely and resplendent,
Breathing, living creatures which display our Creator’s design quite magnificent

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
