The Island (standard:poetry, 93 words)
Author: kendall thomas Added: Feb 18 2006Views/Reads: 1975/0Story vote: 0.00 (0 votes)

Spring is the beginning of bright defiances, 

of flowers beneath the newly-minted leaves, 

of voyages not yet over. 


The helmsman's oars bring me off 

a dappled-island shore 

where soft-lipped unicorns still adore 

mushrooms ringed with morning's polished 

stones in a dell of magic silences 

where negre shadows rise 

to castle-chiseled peaks of gold 

leaned against the rainbow-tinted sky. 


But I am destined for another shore, 

no quiet abode, 

where sirens lure with fateful song 

from gargoyled rocks 

that jut from swirling foam 

and end my search 

with knuckles hard and cold.
