Treasure Island

Aufie Zophy

(18 October 1964)

Y.. The Cloud


A sublime white cloud
Hanging above the sea
Fluffy and streaky
Transparent and bright
White and blue
Fully abstract
A marvellous sight

That cloud,
So nice.
No ancient Greek,
Nor Michelangelo
Nor Van Gogh, Nor Picasso
Has ever made anything
Of such astonishing beauty

Such a sublime piece of art
Sculpted, painted,
By the Ultimate Master
Of all Sculptors, painters

    Yes! A thousand times yes! True! No human hand can continually spread layer after layer of unique beauty as our Mother Nature does. We can try to keep a memory of it by making copies more or less acurate but we can never Create real pure beauty, one after another.. Not in this time and space. Altough I shall contradict myself again and ask: planting a tree couldn't be a creation? A baby's smile is it not a beauty? A flower? We could give such beauty one after another, could we? Please pardon my bubbling there are times that I need to show how ingnorant I am. Lol, as like it is not very obvious.. See what your amaisingly good poem does, messing with my soul or mind and I think it will stick with me for a while.. (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,
and the sheds were all cut out;
