Treasure Island

This is one of those Nights


This is one of those nights, one of those nights.
Unspoken poetry lingers in the thick night air.

This is one of those nights, one of those nights.
I search the stars to understand the light in darkness.

This is one of those nights, one of those nights.
I listen to fire and hear symphonies in silence.

This is one of those nights, one of those nights.
I touch the mountain to feel the earth move in stillness.

This is one of those nights, one of those nights.
I breathe fresh waters for scents of moisture in dry air.

This is one of those nights, one of those nights.
I savor the winds to taste the seasoning of calm.

This is one of those nights, I alone get to escape
to a world of my own, a place that I love, a poetic universe that is all me...

This is one of those nights.

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,
