Treasure Island

Casey Jarrell

Embraced In Wings


The sky far away from here is illuminated.
I fly forth, aiming towards that light, but
the cold rain soaks my wings
and I'm alone again today.

Like the ripples on water, my distant
memories within my heart are wavering.

Right now, I just want to quietly sleep
in a translucent wind embraced in wings.

I'm looking for the whereabouts of the destiny I was entrusted with.
A swarm of falling petal-like feathers dance down.
One day, I'll surely be able to reach
the place that will be able to heal my lonesome heart.

My eyes reflect that place before me as I stare upwards into the sky.
I've gathered the fragments of my sadness.
Eternity is so endless and suffocating.
So much that it sounds like something someone would long for.

My dream is but a mirage. But now, somewhere
it's secretly and transiently blooming.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
