Treasure Island

Mike Tonkin

(16/05/33 / Truro, England)

There is always a moment


There is always a moment
Just before you sleep
When you feel a tremor
In your heart.
And as sleep takes control
Of you
You float in the gentle darkness
Of the night

Is sleeping like death I wonder?
Does it prepare you for the
Final sleep?
Does it prepare you?
To know the answer one has to
Talk to God
But where is he, he is never here
Perhaps he is hard of hearing

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
