Treasure Island

Bryan Riley

(September 2,1966 / Salem, Massachusetts)

Sea of Green


Sea of green!
sea of green
locked between
the earth
and sky
Decadent
prince of
afterthought
taught me all
I need to know
Soft and
low and
sweet and
slow and
lounging in
the afterglow
But that's not
as true as
the sky is blue
and everything
I seem to mean
is washed out
in a sea
of green

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
