Treasure Island

Gabriela Duricova

(22.5.1984 / Bratislava)

Heartbeat Of A Tree

Your eyes reflect the day
Full of green and red silence
So similar to regular
Heartbeat of a tree

There's no place for love
In cuckoo's nest
And only a little of compassion
In passion meant to just feed senses

For the world change is the driving power
And it drives me wild
To see you showing your true colours
You, the prey that hunts me to all edges of horizon

The forest murmurs,
Whimsical voices of fairies and wise men
A choir of timeless wannabe truths
Hit the soul more than the ears

While your hands lovingly caress
The dark side of the moon
Leaving me calm and happy
Right after faith was reborn

You carve a heart into bark
The skin bleeds amber
Fake honey imprisoning
More than the glow of sun

I ache inside just like that tree
But only 'till you say to me
With sweetness pain shall be repaid
And there's beauty in sacrifice

The colours may be getting dimmed
Through ephemeral human time
But trees they face much bigger storms
They'll make our heart safely outlast

Poem of the Day

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
