Treasure Island

Leaking Pen

(Wellington, New Zealand)

Slowly Gently I Rise


Lighter than a feather gently I rise
From the ashes of my remains
Into vitas never ending skies
To Native heaven great plains

Eagle soars beyond earthly bonds
And buffalo roams the grassy land
The grizzly feeds on salmon ponds
I’m nature’s notes musical band

When hearts stop their daily static
And actively listen with cleansed ears
I’m the sound of buzzing bees ecstatic
Cheery blossoms yielding spheres

I’m the hymn of rolling wind
Giving freely life its gentle up lift
Pollen to pollen I transfer God’ mind
Blessings prayers every spring’s gift

Body mass once imprisoned me
I’m not there or it; cry not for its demise
Worldly shackled prison set fee
Released from the handcuffs of analyze

When holding nature’s hands again
These precious moments set prayers free
Rays filter softly from the den of Zen
Sun nourishes every poetic tree

No sash separates me from the divine
When two shall become the one
No dogma captures the essence of shrine
Night is dead my light has won

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
