Treasure Island

Giorgio A. V.

(Athens, Greece)

- Arcanum Bride


A golden ring of oaths and solitaire,
resound of steeling knell and windy call;
angelical her face in streams of air;
my recklessness escorted on our knoll.

She fled amid the gray - transformed to drops;
above the fields consenting in her clouds;
Amid the dusky shades of tall tree tops,
Imparted lives, my solitude's fog shrouds;

Arcane her call, inviting knell, the bride
around my sentiments, henceforth, she orbed,
a quilt of nimbus covered me and cried,
my life became a bird, the skies absorbed.

She stared at me from far beyond, in dark;
unreal, she fled above the ringing field
with trumpets Angels pledged my ghostly barque,
that with betrothal vows, in Styx distilled.

In Acheronian lakes my spirit gleamed;
with thousand drops of rain where tears belong
she fled above the mists redeemed,
and crowned noctilucent moon's waxing wrong.

    After reading you I honestly thought, I won't write anymore. Where is the need for me to compose any of my own... when the world has your finest of works to read and to cherish.
    Really, can I do it the way you put those profound emotions in your lines? no. At best I can take them through a magical or dream like journey. But that something piercing in your words and the depth you can reach... Oh, Giorgio.. no, I can't!
    How each time I'm carried away by your words and verse.. and your beautiful soul! (Report) Reply

The world is full of meat and drink,

In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
