Treasure Island

Kathup Tsering

(1979 / Northern estern Tibet)

Tormented Nights


Fires of night burn shedding warmth
yet my sleepless nights cause me unrest
I am in the midst of an ongoing nightmare

Dust, bloodshed and ink void of purpose
upon these wrinkled-blank pages
fill my heart with tones of discord

History is forming its reality about me
although I seem to have no control of self
I may choose to see otherwise

I have no more words left to express
for my feelings are now darkened
this horrific nightmare engulfs me

Coldness within lights no fire
even though these mountains
bring forth shivering and pain

Anointed by fire, ablaze in burning misery
my ashes are sown upon this mountain
a graveyard I leave as my legacy

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,
