Treasure Island

Vision


For love I look
Unto the ink-blue night sky
Adorned with a crescent moon.
His sublime rays penetrate
The virgin night, awakens her.
The night comes to life.

I watch this union
Of light and the dark
The eternal togetherness
In eternal inconstancy.
And I think of you.

And thus inspired, I invoke
The tellers of love stories,
The legends who attempted to word
The Supreme power, the universal pulse
The cord that connects
The light to the dark; you to me.


And I seek in them, words,
Expressions; to narrate
Tales of my love for you
To versify that
Which is intense prose.

As I turn each page, each poem
Brings me closer to you
I hold on to every phrase
Like my heart’s utterances to yours.

Engulfed thus in tender moonlight
And divine literature.
Time and space a forgotten reality.
A vision dawns upon me
Of you and me, together in silence.
Words shed their purpose, turn needless
As you and I gaze at each other
From across a crowded room.
Our eyes meet
And our souls are together.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
