Treasure Island

Kathup Tsering

(1979 / Northern estern Tibet)

Elegy


Yearning
heart lost
shadows, bleak existence
shaded flowers, bare trees

I sing my elegy song
of fainting moonlight
and embraced desires
lamenting over faraway skies

When will I return home
to welcome spring?
I miss mother’s smile
mother’s heart

Tortured by time
passing time
solitary time
my life dies in exile

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
