Treasure Island

Okoronkwo Jonathan Jackson

(31/12/1987 / Ebonyi State Nigeria)

Meditation


In the wake of the night,
Sitted on the cradle of my bed with
Eyes pierced through the white obstacles
To engage a gaze into the beauty of the night fall;
Then my heart in the silent whispers
Roam to a grasp
Of the understanding of the power underlying the world.

A universe deigned in beauty by mere words of mouth.

Walking the path way of the day
With the harsh sun
Drying the wetted hairs of my confusion,
A still voice says
'Relax, for more yet are still to come-
That you in the wisdom of your focus
May fathom

A universe deigned in beauty by a stretch of hand

Chilling under the cleansing breath of the dusk
With the sun hiding her face and
The trees dancing their ballad,
Spreading their hand of chilling moments
Over the blazing hairs of my relaxation,
Then arises the curiousity of my brain
To inquire

A universe deigned deigned in beauty by a gaze of pity.

When the eyes of my sight are asleep,
The eyes of my heart refuse every slumber to
Awaken the light of my IQ
Pondering on the making of

A universe deigned in beauty by just a cast of shadow.

And when the efficacy of my search ended,
The volumes of my quest unveiled,
Then in the last days at peace be
Having in the silent work of ponder
Grasp the making of

A universe deigned in beauty by God.

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
