Treasure Island

Virginia Cairns

(June 25,1993 / Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania)

Two Creatures, One Fairytale

A lone wolf
Lost, alone, sad
Stuck on the ground by gravity

Searching, seeking
Hunting, wondering
For another to complete him

A frazzled white tiger
Broken, crazed, guarded
Wishing to be saved

Tired of trying
Sick of looking
Yet still hoping

By fate,
These two creatures meet
Stunned by what they feel

They roam the forest together
The wolf caring for her wounds
The white tiger mending the holes in his heart

Wings sprout from their backs
Setting them free
From the chains that had weighed them down

Side by side
They soar into the sky
Flying higher and higher

Into the heavens
Exploring the galaxies
Dancing amongst the stars

The wolf finally whole
The white tiger feeling alive and free
All because fate brought them together

These two creatures
Once sad and broken
Are finally complete and happy

Forever and always,
Till the end of time,
Beyond any limits of life and death

Shall always be
Loved and free
Together for all eternity

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
