Treasure Island

Marie Shine

(April 27th,1950 / Listowel. Co. Kerry)

Summer Wine.


In the warm sunshine
Eyes wide closed
I go to you...
Slipping into your arms
I melt
in the heat of our love
Fused
two become one
In my mind
I am with you...

Breeze gently blows
Fanning the flames
of
my desire for you
as it kisses
my face
Here in body
My heart, mind and soul
are
with you, my love
In my mind
I am with you...

    This strikes me as a pure poem. There are none of the complications and subplots and descriptions that make up a narrative poem. Just the lyrical moment, a song sung just because this scene overflows with joy and where can joy go except into loving arms and shared hours. This is the kind of wine that doesn't befuddle the brain or confuse the mind. It's not intoxicating in that sense. It's like the wine in Sufi poems, a symbol of the finer grace of being. We drink it to refresh the spirit, not to dull it, to open the heart, not to numb the body.. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
