Treasure Island

Sonya Florentino

(Manila, Philippines (residing NYC))


An open door
That's how it feels
An open door and a breeze
Hinting of restless winds
Waiting for me

An open sea
That's how it feels
An open sea and the wind
An open sea never at rest
Waiting for me

An open book
Is what I'll be
An open heart for all to see
An open wound that I will
leave behind

An open sky
Is all I need
And open sky
Is what I seek
An open sky opening wide
For me

An open space
Where I am free
Where love will find me

Poem of the Day

poet Sidney Lanier

Once, at night, in the manor wood
My Love and I long silent stood,
Amazed that any heavens could
Decree to part us, bitterly repining.
My Love, in aimless love and grief,
