Treasure Island

Joshua Dinkin

(March 8,1985 / Boca Raton, Florida)

When There At Once

When there at once you met me there,
Through deep blue skies and cloudless air,
In a summer dress with birds in flight,
Verily carrying brightest light,
Then I so merrily and with delight
Embraced you, eyes closed, without care.

We traveled back to where you stayed,
And back to memories we had made,
And we made love on a bed of clouds,
Far from the wide-eyed, scurrying crowds,
While wild winds whipped through the shrouds,
Until our waking hours did fade.

Each morn we woke up, side by side—
O how long this sensation had been denied!
To touch your perfect, smiling face,
To share with you that sacred space,
Those details, like filigree and lace,
Shall in my heart forever reside!

A magical journey, an enchanting romance,
Our love come together and kept in a trance—
Excursions of pleasure, whole days of delight,
Like flowers in full-bloom, feathers in flight,
Through each sun-filled adventure, each star-studded night,
We spun ‘round and ‘round in an endless dance.

And then, once again, I went up through the blue,
And flew far far away from all that I knew—
I miss you already, I love you, I’m sad,
For the love that we shared and the time that we had
Is now just a story on an old writing pad,
Till we reunite and start over anew…

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
