Treasure Island

Giorgio Venetopoulos

(Athens, Greece)

On Sky Drive II

For seven days he wandered as a ghost,
where souls of other dimensions had lived;
the times forgot his falsities that heaved,
in dark nimbus and a mist covered coast.

He walked on sand for many miles and then
strongholds appeared hazy in dusk distance,
it was a cry of wolf to sown instance,
and two scholastic birds to croak again.

The roses died.. The colors dyed in rain;
None interrupted the silent grayness,
thus strong the dusk stooped in his emptiness,
outcast lives of begotten seeds in vain.

Calm, Master Death came to engulf him thrice,
forsooth freed cold as for twenty five
odd days the brave went to sleep on sky drive,
lost spirit left his winter pray on ice.

Wounded the chords of time harped in union,
a stalwart's solitude's upon the waves;
he visioned a pasture in his mind caves,
in the narrow cell, he drunk communion.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
