Treasure Island

Nicholas Nikolov

(April.6,1988 / Toronto)

Nirvana River


Bubbling, babbling of the rivers'
tender benevolence,
whilst coursing downstream
as I saunter through my daydream;
the river flowing resembles a trickster's
laughter as upon April's significance.
Less I forget, this sweet sound -
joined by the clashing upon the rocks profound,
combined with the harmonious
symphony - adding to it - is a soft singing breeze
standing still, as though all movement is at a freeze.
Such tranquility is magnificently stupendous.
Such peace, such encompassing relaxation
truly is enlightening - waited in high-anticipation
throughout my eternal lifetime cycle
hoping my kin can recycle
such wonder
without any ponder.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
