Treasure Island

Marvin Brato Sr

(March 2,1960 / Davao City, Philippines)

' Emotional Nourishment '


If only poetry is food
then its easy to digest
and assimilate its content
then get full satisfaction

But poetry is inanimate
only depicts intricacies
filling the hungry hearts
with sentiments that soothe

Bards are gifted composers
who cook amazing compositions
of poetic array of exotic thoughts
like condiments enthusing nourishment

    True, as poets, our hunger to be heard...not only by others, but our own selves, is immense.. I enjoyed your writings, and invite you to mine...you capture the essence of love in a profound and sweet sense. Well done poet friend. PEACE (Report) Reply

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,
