Treasure Island

Raj Arumugam


winter sunset


the morning started with fog
and now late, a dark sky hangs over Brisbane;
in the West a child has scrawled
untidy clouds
over the sun
and the remaining pieces of silver
are eaten like potato chips
by the night

the winter night
takes the sun in her ample breasts

the moon looks helpless on the opposite side

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau
