Treasure Island

Maia Padua

(Virgo / City of Gentle People)

In the Shadows of Shadow

In the shadows of shadow
Illumines your wonders
In the widest field
Fruits of all fruits;
Beyond far horizon,
Behind few wandering clouds
Lonely sparrow follows

Shield from unseen debris
Of devouring lies
Your shades and rays
Paint the empty page
Pages to pages
A shift of story
A portrait of me

Pain captures
in every page of story
Bears not a mystery
Yet bares truth, unspoken
The shadows of shadow
In dreams of dreams
Of dreams within a dream
Reveals reality
All through the destiny
You saved me

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
