Treasure Island

Joshua Dinkin

(March 8,1985 / Boca Raton, Florida)

That Fateful Day


Daylight turns to purple dust,
The butterflies have all retired—
I dream of you, the one I must
Return to, burning with desire!

Someday soon we’ll humbly dwell
Within each other’s arms, and then
The waters of our love will swell
And surge with passion once again!

I miss you more than words can say,
More than crying eyes let on,
Waiting for that fateful day,
Dawn’s golden light upon our lawn…

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
