Treasure Island

Jay Alexander


Timeless


A creamy dazzle from a pearl
Enlightens me, as if its weight
Is too hard to bear. Thinking is
Pursuing, a pale thought, white as parchment
And bland as water, zoned in.

Extreme action is no option, it is circumspect,
It is linked, it is brushed aside;
A drained dream jumping, a wide line,
Shadowed, infinite - this can touch you -
You may know it. Whilst passing
It is a function of your body,
You are one to zero bytes,
A micro-presence elevated,
Gauzed process.
This can last hours
From blank to blank.

All you know is,
You once touched,

A pale
white
lightness.

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,
