Treasure Island

Sparrow


A picture in my mind
Not drawn in paper
But curved in my heart
Engraved of memories.

A tall lean girl
With long silky hair
Shining beautiful eyes
Skating through the ice.

Blade of the skate
Turned into high speed
And tuned incredibly
Through the burning melted ice.

Never watched her curves
Ups and downs of muscles
Or marvelous shape
But her miracle escapes.

Diving through the air
Stepping ups
And steeping downs
Sudden ends and starts.

Dribbling in the air
Stopping on the boards
Skating through the ice
And flying like a sparrow.

Pictured in my mind
Not drawn in paper
But curved in my heart
Engraved of memories.

    Borrowing words from poet Lento Maez, may I say, Keep on keeping on'', that means:
    Keep on imagining and savoring the sweet memory.
    The title does not appropriately cover the theme or narration of the poem.
    However, the poem is beautiful and I gave it a 10. (Report) Reply

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!
