Treasure Island

Sulaiman Mohd Yusof


Over The Rainbow

The morning rays of the Sun cling
On the upper bow of the Rainbow
Emerge after a moment ‘s dusk
Brown Pelicans and Western Gulls
Fly beneath the lower bow
That touches the water
Send fishes into hiding

As I walk along the white beach
Looking at the sea, the blue waters
Dance its way towards the golden sand
Shy away from the smiling horizon
Once, in a jubilant second, vessels across,
Scream their hearts out,
Ignite the nature’s garland
The Princess of the Sea,
Colorful as Galaxies dust
Catches watchful eyes off-guard

The seven colors spectrum is the senses
Nourishes the need and desire
Like a prism, it passes through every heart
Leaving the lights of absolution
Windward and crystallize

Red, orange, yellow
Life and love bestows
Green, blue, indigo
Ships of love embargo
Engaged for passion
Rhymes like couplet
One kiss,
Over the rainbow
Breaches the distance
Between friendship
And love

    Can I be honest? You asked me to comment on this poem so I will.. It isnt necessarily poorly written, but it seriously lacks originality and authentic voice. I didn't hate this poem, but it sure does feel like ive read it several times before (Report) Reply
