Treasure Island

Imam Setiaji Ronoatmojo

(1 July 1960 / Cilacap (Indonesia))

the birds were lazy to fly


there was no anger here, my dear
but love and falling leaves ~
peace and love are 2 sides
of the same coin
it was like Abraham Lincoln
what is life without love?
what is the meaning of love
without making peace
tenderness of the mountain wind
abort sizzling yellow leaves
what does it mean of hate
for you, my dear?
in the row of trees
the birds were lazy to fly

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.
