Treasure Island

Derrick Hubert Schnabel

(16th March,1949 / Johannesburg, South Africa)

2011


sonnet #9
2011

safe within my own tame shell
of hollow counterfeit dreams
like stricken polluted streams
living in a lonely hell
of cold dated memories
and those that wait to be lived
a brave new path not followed
for fear of uncertainties
my long pained search for meaning
Christ! what a poor sad mess-up!
time for a real deep wake up
a fresh start keenly seizing
as the sun sets it rises
a year for new horizons

To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
