Treasure Island

Heather Burns


A Poet


When a poet
takes up his pen
yesterday today
tomorrow begins

As we approach an
open door
Inside starting
to explore

Taking my readers
on a journey too
Precious treasures
to review

Come along go
with me
together we will
find the key
exploring life's
mysteries.

    Just beautiful
    Love the way
    You say
    So much
    With so little
    Your words
    How you whittle
    To convey
    What the heart
    Is trying to say
    Words meaningful
    And so apt
    Phrases
    that hold me rapt
    My salute
    To to your
    mighty pen
    Write away........ (Report) Reply

    A poets desire is well expressed. Every writer/poet wants to take along the readers with him/her and experiences which has already been experienced by the poet. (Report) Reply

    That journey, is a joyful ride and I can't say no to it, I've followed on your footprints and walked where you walked many times and always the walk is very fun indeed...

    This rings true. But now I write on my iPhone with access to the net and built in dictionary. Still great fun. (Report) Reply

    Ah the poets open up the doors
    asking questions, prodding thoughts
    exposing beauty and so much more
    I cannot imagine a world so bleak
    empty of rhyme, poets, and poems
    that I would have to weep (Report) Reply

    Yes, let us go on a ride, exploring life's mysteries! The invitation is accepted whole heartedly! (Report) Reply

    The starting stanza is excellent! The poet's invitation to take the readers along, in her journey to explore mysteries of life is sincere. Poets love to explore the enigma as life unfolds its mysteries. (Report) Reply

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
