Treasure Island

In the Theatre of Our Hair

We put our heads together
(hide behind our hair)

only kisses & promises

happen in here.

We put our heads together
(disappear behind our hair)

the world reduced to a single heartbeat

only love happens here.

We put our heads together
(the world disappears)

Time seems to pass us by

...who cares?

    Jim has picked the perfect word for what I have read so far - - potent, but so very sketchily done...I am amazed to see how few words it takes to describe such powerful emotions...only love happens here! Outstanding writing. (Report) Reply

    Sketchily potent. Loads of space for the reader to interpose their own equivalents, and yet it's not so loose that we get lost. Interesting, imaginative and it works. Good writing! (Report) Reply

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,
