Treasure Island

Dejan Stojanovic

(March 11,1959 / Pec, Kosovo (the former Yugoslavia))

Love in Arizona


You are from California
I am from the Midwest
But we met in Arizona
And went to the desert
To measure thorns
Of the lonely, dispersed cactuses
Measure the light rays,
Measure the distance,
Between us and the world
Measure the love and kisses and screams
In the solemn silence of the desert.
We kissed the dusty ground
And asked the dry land for a reason
But the ground was silent
And we got silent
There was no measure no reason
Only life, only life,
In the dead desert
And we kissed more
And did not ask or look for a reason
Anymore

    Measure the love and kisses and screams
    In the solemn silence of the desert.......................

    yet meet at infinity being parallel from prologue to epilogue, wonderful write by imagery, yet ingenious too,10++++, thanks for sharing (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Vaughan

They are all gone into the world of light!
And I alone sit ling'ring here;
Their very memory is fair and bright,
And my sad thoughts doth clear.
