Treasure Island

Manonton Dalan

(virginia, usa)

everything is going away except me


feather fell from sky
zigzagging its way
waiting pretty eyes
wondering how, where
where it came from
in calming afternoon

bare feet following
in distance multiplying
naughty wind blowing
so beautiful above river
gently flowing on curves
trees towering, eyes peeping

on lush field of soybeans
so green that of solid jade
crisscross by mile long train
colorful with a face of a child
painted on its side with smile
for every intersection, awed

tired feet soak in river
given up chase, caught a view
of fins wiggling in shallows
going against cool water desire
i rather not chase them away
i hope they forever stay

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,

In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
