Treasure Island

Dark Angel

(19th Sept 1983 / Nairobi Kenya)

The Mystery Eyes


The crowd parted magically
and the whole noisy world seemed
to disappear in a whiff
And there he stood, proud and captivating with
Eyes so bright and magnetic.


I looked, not one but many
Surreptitiously I cast searching and assesing glances
to confirm i was seeing right
Still there he was, magnificient in appearance with
Eyes so bright and magnetic


I willed to tear my eyes away from his
once his gaze caught and held mine
to a silent allure
Deeper into me he seemed to stare with
Eyes so bright and magnetic


His lips parted in a captivating engaging smile
the way the sun strains against the clouds
to throw it's warm rays
I felt as if he was beckoning me with
Eyes so bright and magnetic


I looked down in serious indecision
debating whether to walk to him
to know more about him
I looked - nothing, now all I have is a memory of
Eyes so bright and magnetic

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
