Treasure Island

Betty Jo Hilger

(05/29/65 / Missouri)

Cascades of Wonder…


Silken droplets fell onto the burnished leaf
And rolled their way down to the blades below
Caressing whispered breath, angelic in its form
Conveying peace and welcome from the storm

Shining sheets of silver, glittering display
Falling from the heavens as a kiss
The lightest touch of velvet lips landing on the tell
Serenity, a narrative befell

Fairy speech, inaudible, believed yet never heard
Delivered on the wings of feathered winds
Conversing in the languages, unearthly to perceive
Sensations felt as rain embraces skin

And laying soft and tranquilly within a splendid dream
Her mind has taken flight within the limbs
Of candor’s giant sentinels who reign magnificent
O’erhead within the splendor, heaven sent

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"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—
