Treasure Island

Tears In Rain


Touching Petals


An apparent promise of nurturing powers
Another offering of healing showers
Silently we shared these gifts of ours
Like flowers
Flowers touching petals

One soul discovers selflessness
Another beauty unabashed
They caress but briefly nonetheless
Like flowers
Flowers touching petals

Almost opening to the reborn light
Poetry in motion, rekindled delight
Unlikely lovers lost in the night
Like flowers
Flowers touching petals

But human hearts they hesitate
They hope, they dream and they complicate
They fear the flood, the tears, they’re delicate
Like flowers
Flowers touching petals

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
