Treasure Island

Ebi Robert

(6 feb 1990 / Yenagoa(Niger Delta))

A sky of promise


I looked into the sky and
Found curved lines.
Filled with multiple colours in a rainbow earth.
A blue line bubbled behind a
Yawning yellow cap.
A red ridging road rapping.
A salting sky of pledge
Sit the sky afresh.
Earth will never go through hell

    One of earth's wonders the rainbow, after troubled and tormented skies a little promise of good and better things to come. My favourite line is A red ridging road rapping.You reminded me I like alliterations. Am now off to write some :) Take care my friend. (Report) Reply

    IT IS TRUE
    LOOK UP IN THE SKY AND YOU WILL SEE GOD'S PROMISE OF LOVE
    THERE ARE MANY WAYS TO BE HAPPY AND YOU ONLY HAVE TO OPEN YOUR EYES TO BEAUTY GOD GIVES

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