Treasure Island

Hazel Durham


Moments of sheer exhilaration,
Riding finely tuned thoroughbreds, in a horse lovers nation,
Falling leaves, upon sweet smelling meadows like cunning thieves,
Sprinkles of raindrops tied in silky bows, intricately weaved,
Silver moons shimmering iconically, in a inky black sky,
Fairytales and legends, that ain't no lie,
Castles, ancient towers, holy wells, the sound of church bells.

Peace is here now, tranquillity shining everyday,
With polished sunshine and rain that can't be tamed,
Life is rich in song and poetry
In a land obsessed, with the art of being free,
Mountains, lakes and forests congregate in glorious opulence,
Moments to dance with nature's own kind,
Nobody is ever left behind,
Moments, moments of a lifetime, that always rhymes.

My lifesource's saved me when i was immersed in shifting sands,
Thinness became a goal, losing all interest in my soul,
My amazing parents, showed me the splendour of diversity, in this timeless land,
Music playing continualy, like a rhythm and blues band.
Mystic mountains, luminous lakes, the blue majestic ocean,
Always a fanfare in motion,
My heart soars as i drink this magic potion.

Loving words are a kingdom for a notion,
Moments, moments of golden days,
Forever love, in this island caressed, from high up above.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
