Treasure Island

Frances Ayers

(New York)

Heart And Home(Haiku Chain)


Refuge for my heart
Are these tattered, battered walls
Suffice it to say

Memories flourish
in scattered places among
Bric a brac and wood

With laughter and tears
The window dressing, adorned
With secret wishes

A heart's fervent plea
To live out the remainder
Of its years at home

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
