Treasure Island

Night Duo


Now the vapours start descending,
Wishing nature to be taken-
Slender turn in me awaken!

Though my brow be misty, bracken,
Never words were made or spoken,
I'm a demon to that notion.

As a fever notes a tremble,
Only now will I dissemble,
In a pattern well assembled.

Time is kind in blackened hour,
And within me blooms a tower,
Born of Aegis brilliant flower -
Illuminates a latent power.

Light entangles ancient meaning,
And the duo, mining notions,
Out of space, extracting fusions,
Grown from loss, and waste illusions.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This was written after I'd visited an exhibition of Symbolist art. When I left the gallery, it was evening and as I made my way home and walked along the lake the water was very still and was covered by a light mist. The scene was at once gloomy and romantic, a bit like the paintings at the exhibition.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
