Treasure Island

Giorgio Venetopoulos

(Athens, Greece)

The feather dances

A feather flies amid the soft draught to fiddle,
in smiling trajectories of blue twiddle,
pilots curves like of a movement random,
like the air traveler to Heavens' stardom.

It moves away form Earth's blurry apparition,
above the roofs it flies on benign cognition
playing along in air-streams of Zephyr,
to flirt with Amadryads odes on lyre.

In splendid glaze, with spirits turmoiling,
- caressing whiffs upon mere earthlings,
where the feather is favored by tailwinds,
when the women dream in their embracing glints.

It streams above the Ocean, with Naiads,
to accord a lullaby, and bluish myriads
of waves to maneuver oscillating along,
the ocean where air whistles a song!

The anabatic flow takes it higher, to bevy,
in clouds where stand the raindrops heavy,
where spirits who remained last, bemoan,
a feather flies amid the tears of souls gone!

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
