Treasure Island

Rainbow


I wouldn’t chase away the rainbows inside you
You’ve showed me nothing, I would change.
And also know there isn’t a mirror that hasn’t
Flaked off some silver-oxide or been cracked.
And also know there isn’t a king or a prince
Who hasn’t lost their ill-fitting crown?

Even the mountains that have also up-grown
They’re sometimes, stripped aback. But I wouldn’t
Canon’s blast their yellow-gold from your breast.
I wouldn’t cut or take your flowers to a vase
Or axe your forest canopy for exploration…
Just to make a well-travelled serpentine path.

Such wilderness… is not only yours or mine.
Give me your heart its Persian jasmine garden
And I’ll creep like a vine with lemon dropping leaves
Floating; around your floors for the wind to explore.
Let the buzzards in their envy cry from the sky
For tonight only you and I the stars shall dine.

Cause even I need the elixir of a rainbow
Azure passion is all I promise or propose.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
