Treasure Island

Tien Lai


Sedona, Arizona


Embosom with Nature's piquancy of
 shape and loom  
Earthly, red bedrocks; jutted towers;
 carved beneath the heavenly cocoon    
Whistling wind in the thin upper dell
Sights and sounds speaks to the inner
 veil
Miles and miles of forms distinct
Stirs the imagination of possible
 hint
Beauty so alien yet so real
Sings to the heart to be still
Majesty, grandeur of prism red
Absent not the ground that bled
Magic is to the beholden
Starlight dust, all things are woven  
Beauty beyond its outer appearance
Rocks and stones touch the force of
 Spirit

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
