Treasure Island

Abdul Wahab


>>>>Wonder Woman


Like a flower what a woman knows
Of her own essence that she holds
In her chest and in between her petals
What beauty and grace she spreads
Upon the surface of this world
She knows not like a cliff
What glory of height she exhibits
Like a deer
She runs frantically here and there
But she knows not
The source of fragrance is her naval

Honey knows not of its own
Ask a bee what sweetness it posses
And only a man knows
What depth of delight a woman gives
Her kindness is like an ocean
But ask not a woman
Like bottom she is shroud in darkness
And about herself she knows nothing.

    Jeff Cannon Yes, how hard to recognize our own wonder, beauty, presence and accept it, befriend it, without the tender gaze of the other, spilling moon light grace over us, drenching us with embraced attention, a spirit mirror for us to swim in, know ourselves at home in the spinning world - thank u Abdul Wahab, for this tender piece, insight with body heart, massaging mind back into garden sensuality embracing the wholeness along with the mystery, asking its questions, answering a few, teasing us all the time to enter the speckled colors of its laughter come to know them without rejecting any of them (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
