Treasure Island

RIC S. BASTASA


a fixation


between two islands
of my life
i set upon a swim
this middle portion
of clear calm waters

it is not deep
no storms not even a wave
it is crystal clear
and beneath
a white sandy floor

some fish lick my legs
and tickle my pelvis
some sea grass massage
the soles of my feet

and so i like it here
and i am not going somewhere
or anywhere

the other island
which they call eternal bliss
for a while
can wait

it is between day and night
it is between heaven and earth
it is between life and death
it is what you call
my sinfulness.

in here i am very happy
and that is all enough for me

the sky blue waters are so cool
& the surroundings simply beautiful

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
