Treasure Island

Ahmad Shiddiqi

(March 7,1974 / Semarang, Central Java, Indonesia)

Sonnet 6


Queen Beatrix' necklace is made of ivory
from all that whatever you wish
the bitter suffering of slavery
under attack by husky voice

London Bridge became an obsession
in the relief idleness of serenity
was love something similar to passion?
no one fought for a quarter of eternity

a living room is full of lunar grave mounds
said goodbye after four greeting phrases
you played Saint-Saens' Piano Concerto
and the other two began to dance fandango
returned as young and lively as the rising sun
in rejoice for a much deeper than anyone

    Your sonnet pieces are filled with fascination Ahmad - and result in a mesmorising surrealism to the reader - you have done so well with them - - my congratulations - - 10 and more from Fay (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Vaughan

They are all gone into the world of light!
And I alone sit ling'ring here;
Their very memory is fair and bright,
And my sad thoughts doth clear.
