Treasure Island

The Greatest Trick The Devil Ever pulled


The undulating movement of the rose petal on the diamond stream
Placating the waves gently
Beauty in all its essence
Displaying its acrobatic reeling twists and turns
In superior fashion
Of grace and panache
The beauty of its life
Nothing good lasts forever “it says”
And the stream melts into a water fall
It is impossible to escape “it says”
And he looses control of himself
In the throes of his woes
In the indignation of his lamentation
In the confusion of his meager existence
A rock anchors him
A miracle, he says
Only to see a white rose petal
Placating the waves gently
Divine Beauty in all its essence
Displaying its divine acrobatic reeling twists and turns
In divine superior fashion
Of divine grace and panache
Surprised
Nothing good lasts forever “it says”
And only then did he realize the devils voice
And the greatest trick he ever pulled
convincing him That he was him

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,
