Treasure Island

Haustean Straussfield


It's you


There is a sound in my heart
voice so sweet
like the hummingbird chirps
spreading like an epidermic
a dreaded disease devouring my flesh
and has been eating me up as the wave travels
yet she appeared in a flash
tormenting my soul ever since
beautiful, oh beautiful
how long shall this heart suffer?
from this joyful groan within
crystals from tears
bright like diamonds
which glows with the shadow of your presence

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

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;
