Treasure Island

The Seduction of Chaos


Swirling winds sweep silently
as detritus is strewn about
in empty space, which can be
penciled on graphs as frenetic apices on parabolas.

Detritus is strewn about
giving the appearance of
chaotic collision,
an illusion in which gravity is invisible,

Giving the appearance of randomness,
like chance encounters,
unlikely couplings of lovers, temporary and tempestuous,
in fits and starts - and methods of madness.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
