Treasure Island



Why these poems collections of words do we read, write
Is it to relieve our inner feelings that fight
Or to release the pressure building up inside
From all those things from the world we hide
Maybe its to send some special gift
Or a message of forgiveness to repair a rift
We pour into our poems our inner being as we can
Our words breathing life into the poem we began
Sculpting images that are lodged in our mind
Of our dreams or whoever, whatever in life we find
Fiery passion literally burns into the page
Our seesaw of emotions from calmness to stormy rage
We share memories of those that are engraved on our hearts
And things that happened to ensure the story never parts
With our pain we stab the letters deep into the verse
And impale hurt when it seems just cant get worse
It can be a diary of events that are important to you
A record of happy things or why you feeling blue
Our imagination flows across the universe here we are free
And the poet can take you anywhere just you and me
Whatever the reason we may really write
Enjoy writing and reading for that is everyone’s right

Poem of the Day

poet Anne Bradstreet

Lo, now four other act upon the stage,
Childhood and Youth, the Many and Old age:
The first son unto phlegm, grandchild to water,
Unstable, supple, cold and moist's his nature
