Treasure Island

Ellen Shaw


I felt it like Creation


I felt it like a rumble
That tumbled
And cracked and split
An earthquake
That was earth shattering
And soul trembling
I felt it like an explosion
Hot lava
Over my skin
A volcano
All consuming
That heated my soul within
I felt it blow me over
Left me quivering
Like a leaf alone in the wind
A hurricane
Causing destruction
To be repaired once again
I felt it like creation
That marked the beginning of time
Time stopped and restarted
Never ended
The pleasure of this story
I tell you, is mine.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
