Treasure Island

Jacob Jaycee

(11th february / Nigeria)


Ocean! Thy waters moves thus
In a manner that, fascinates us
We spend our life wondering
How you flow peacefully without overflowing
You walk into every sea and river
But you never lose any water.

At the rise of sunshine
Your face glitters and smile
The sparkle and reflection
Make the mind an illusion
We feel and see what is not
When you move in the rhythm
of an unknown music
Men wonder where Thy player
makes his music.

The music you make could not be heard
Yet men dance at the tune of it
But they dance in joy of what is not

When you collide you make rain
When you flow peace rain
Thy beauty marvels the eye in confusion
And when the day meet the dusk
The pretty smiling face frowns
At this hour your works
Calm and gentle they become
Breeze moves on your surface
Mild and charming your banks become.

Trees near shore shook in blisful mood
Now the birds retire to their nest
All you could hear is the chipping
And restlessness in the wind.

    This is good... You've succeeded in making my eyes long for a 'meditatory' view of the ocean....
    Your OCEAN whispers bliss, and submissiveness to nature's explicit order of: Thou shalt not your limit trespass... Thanks for sharing this. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
