Treasure Island

Martina Moriarty

(15/04/1964 / Kerry)

Navigator


She is navigator of all proper
I am the driving-Iron behind her power.
She is pine...and sweet sensation
I am the wisdom of her direction and legacy

She is unquenchable in her consistency
I am the bright spark? that ignites her Universe
both grounded by burdens without any notice
unlawful deeds exchanged by slight of hand
fools who thought time...would surely have forgotten
But time...it seems gave me the winners stand.

I am 'fastened' by her Universal visions
my unquenchable consistency knows no bounds
entwined with love's protective designation
measured only by the essence of her sigh.

I have walked the path dared traveled
and in the dark of brutal light
We found the land of Noble Kings
where a Lady is rewarded for the tricksters
Mortal sins.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
