Treasure Island

Hopeless hopes


When the dawn arrives
kissing the corner of the roof
I am awakened from my dream
an intoxicating dream.

suddenly life seems to be at a distance
where man struggles
to remove the thin veil of illusion.

with hopes spiraling high
man aimlessly harbors hopeless hopes
that mankind have always been hoping for
the hope for a miraculous results.

I wonder
where lies the border
that divides the real and transient
because the illusionist
casts a veil so thin indivisible.

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,
