Treasure Island

Itai Oscar


Bright Future


At the midday of my life,
I take a glance at my rear view mirror
behind me I see speed humps, curves and road blocks
I come into cognizance that there has been a delay
time had evaporated gradually
inspite of the delay, I won't give up

The melancholy evaporates like dew at sunrise
the mist of confusion subsides gradually
through my window with my head out, I wave goodbye
goodbye to midlife crisis

Through my windscreen I see a glitter
my future is so bright I need sunglasses
my blurred vision regains its former strength
fresh fire is ignited in my bones.
with a new zeal I step on the accelerator up to the hilt

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
