Treasure Island

Myths and Symbols


An island represents the world and people that inhabit it,
A conch represents democracy and freedom of speech,
Glasses symbolize power as well as the power to understand,
And have common sense,
Light represents the power to reveal or conceal,
As well as to create and illusion in the mind,
It means knowledge as well,
The sun shows power and strength however it seems,
Like it's also the protector of good,
The sea seems to represent a haven of unknown,
And maybe evil,
Fire symbolizes a killer and a fighting, killing soldier,
In a deadly war only to claim lives,
Beasts are not actually real but show a,
Pigment of fear in the world and all that inhabit,

These are some symbols in life,
Some may help and some may not,
But in the world there are many more,
Or you could say greatly a lot,
But in this world of great demise,
We all take our place,
To give the symbols, an erotic feeling,
And use them at our pace...

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,
