Treasure Island

Beau Jordan

(October 2,1980 / Wallingford, Connecticut)


Words are powerful entities themselves

They can be used to strengthen, rejuvenate, and rekindle our energies

Words can beautify the soul, direct the spirit, and purify the heart

Words bear our sorrows, voice our hurts, and shelter our softer side

They can brighten our days, generate community an instill laughter in children the world over

Words bless, curse, flatter, chastise, and tease,

They forage sympathy, empathy, and elation

We express them in books, poems, email, sonnets, letters, and songs

There almost seems to be a limitless unyielding capacity for which a written and oral language can be used

And while all of this indeed may be true, I have no words for you

There is no flattery, word, sonnet, written in the past or yet to be recorded that can speak to the radiant light you’ve beamed into my life

With respect to you though; I am absolutely speechless….

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
