Treasure Island

Tanya Ivanova

(04.08.1980 / Varna, Bulgaria)

Cold


By the fireplace of personal wellbeing

We are sitting and champing some chips.

We are watching around, but not seeing,

All we do is giving good tips.



And the cold outside is unreal,

Someone’s dying there - it is not us,

We are speaking of bargain and deal

And are passing by them like a bus.



And engulfed into sweetness and sleep,

Real warmth is only outside.

Cold possesses us into our deep,

When for others we no warmth provide.

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;
