Treasure Island

Martina Moriarty

(15/04/1964 / Kerry)

On The Good Ship

She never met the Captain
yet! ...
the ocean knew his name?
Rugged hopes clenched together by the threads of rapture embraced by him!
Late night secret sailings to the cave-of-bonfire-hearts-
reading charts...of his art? show her his worthy way...

Danger was as close as a serpents shave?
Yet! ...
the ocean knew her name?
the safety of his presence turned her cryptic voyage worldly.
Smooth vibes fastened together-
by the strands of everlasting space.
Sentenced early freed by the protection of his compelling vision

With her one last desire!
he cast his breath among the pulse of time
to salvage their new beginning.
Thus a new day was born..

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,
