Treasure Island

Beach Leanbh

As Sea and Moon Align


Time your tears to the tides
To ebb and flow with the ocean
Or let them wax as the moon subsides
The pale dimming of your emotion

Your eyes they sparkle as they look
Dark bearings set on fields of snow
And I can read them like a book
Written in a language I no longer know

With a finger I’ll raise your chin
And press your mouth to mine
When one day ends, the next begins
As sea an moon align

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
