Treasure Island

Diana Rosser


Today I'm missing you


Blue morning, bare foot on the garden grass,
wet dew between my toes as I make my
way amid misty plays that softly pass
through familiar words of days long gone by.

If I could save time goes through me rippling,
a breaking wave on lost dreams broken shore
dragging yesteryears sharp splinter, catching
me missing you as countless times before.

If in your imperforate life I placed
myself, would the mirrors sharp fractured shard
that returns to haunt, melt and be erased
and blessed sunshine's beam complete my heart.

Or has time distorted dreams old and new
I know not, but today I'm missing you.

    beautiful poem, Diana
    I would make one change in the line
    If I could save time, to
    If I could say time

    best line,
    If I could say time goes through me rippling,
    a breaking wave on lost dreams broken shore

    all forlornly pistol packing misery
    sorry, but words of expression
    still I Think your poem is unique, one of a kind
    and saying it is like mine is a disservice to your poem
    and an insult to the poet who wrote it, ...you (Report) Reply

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;
