Treasure Island

Leaking Pen

(Wellington, New Zealand)

Fish


Like a fish out of water
My prayers are to deaf ears
What I fear the most came true
Unlock the tears of my fears

Poetry's end down the hatch
Visited by death! Decides to stay
Life withers from an empty shelf
Eerie stillness spills all over the way

Goodbye, farewell, auf wiedersehen
My empty mind gathers around its own kind
The rest of my life so void of Zen
Sequestered the last of my rhyming mind

To find the greed and fish for two more
Perfection needs fourteen what a gore!

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

Only in sleep I see their faces,
Children I played with when I was a child,
Louise comes back with her brown hair braided,
Annie with ringlets warm and wild.
