Treasure Island

RIC S. BASTASA


They too were dubbed as morons during their harsh times


Reading the works of those who died
and risen from their commonality makes me
feel that i am
after all, an inferior if not a mediocre
clown juggling with my own kind of lousy choice of words
and priority of ideas,

i pause, i sigh, and has come to the brink of simply
perusing the tenets of chosen silence,

but i keep the faith, i am different, and i belong to my own age now
upon a style that they have not taken
upon a choice that is lighted by the torch of my own idiosyncrasies

i read some more, down to the last details, they too, were dubbed
as morons during their harsh times.

with this, i write another one, and since then
cannot stop.

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,
