Treasure Island

Nassy Fesharaki

(Dec 29 / Iran)

Hallucinated


Beak yellow
Spotty the feathers
(Gold on black)
Tail is short
Head small
Legs funny
(As if in a stove
A straw
Partly charred,
Thin feathers are black,
Part orange; set to light
And partly turned to ash
Hanging on as claws

An expert
Looks for worms
In the grass
Each blade wearing hat;
Fresh dews

Early spring
After rain
No snail
Absent worms

The vegans
Sparrows and their kin
Too small; redder head
On the grass, search for seed

In love with beauty
I look around
Look at nymphs; Aphrodite,
Man-made art
And kind girls and their site
(Who are fooled or are bought)
With wonder I am lost.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Louis Stevenson

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
