Treasure Island

Hazel Connelly

(28th September 1949 / Lancashire)

The Portal


I hesitantly walked through the portal
As it's light grew, encompassing me,
Not knowing what lay ahead
I was blinded and could not see.

My palms sweaty, my mind racing,
I walked trying to reach the end,
Moving 500 miles a minute
This I did not intend.

Those minutes were precious
The portal started to fade
To where was I heading?
Would I be dismayed?

Scanning for a planet,
A warming star, a cooling night,
I soared through the heavens
searching for the finite.

I was the vortex of time
The portal was sealed,
At the core of the rift
I was the infinite shield.

Where would I be to this day?
If I had not followed through
The lore of the portal
Not knowing whether to pursue.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
