Treasure Island

Margaret Alice Second

(24 January 1961 / South Africa)

The World Aglow

Intelligent, loving energy forming a golden
dome of light I request to shine on everyone
I love, including April suffering a stroke; took
care of me yesterday - when I found the cotton
shirt I wore was growing limp like a sad old
crumpled rag, I ran into a shop and found a
perfect purple T-shirt to wear in its stead

With a scarf and beads in various purple shades
to emphasise its lines the day was saved; today
I went back to the shop for another one & found
none; when my need was great, a loving energy
provided just one shirt in my size to help – thus
meditation, visualising love sent everywhere to
everyone for all emergencies

Covered all in a loving shine and brought me help,
now, while staring at cold words in a text about
controlling energy; a warm feeling of glee is
rising in my soul, setting the world aglow…

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
