Treasure Island

Antonio Liao

(november 7,1957 / dapitan city)


boulders comes in the highest mountain, rolling
and rushing down to the river and stream, where
a settle of roar hump like the silent of the night
awaken by a whispering of the rickets stand

the laughter sounded like cry in the distance
of sky changing as the high tide of the sea, just
to hear in the paradise of what everybody see,
come helm my wish and let it set to fly in the
passing midnight flee, where no one knows
where to go, though far as the sky lives the
humble seagull wants to fly

wait until it is gone start where nobody wants
to sail in the ocean that is full of nothing but just
a wonderful dream that all can taste and touch the
little Edsa feast; where ringing of bells trust can be
achieve and leads by that promise of gentle rest

hail, comes the victor of the sand, the stone that
is move, clings to conquer the vast land, even if
they have already gone yet, with that spirit that is
left comes the mighty deeds for great things is
carried out and seen by their own son

farewell dear heroes of our mother land, goodbye
and so long …….

15th President of the Republic of the Philippines “

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,
