Treasure Island

Jeff Gangwer

(September 23,1984 / Hood River, Oregon)

A Mission, a Will...a Hope


In a foreign land,
A pilgrim from the west
Pushes his fingers into the earth

He does this with a mission, a will, and a hope

He works to draw out a small sample—
A piece of the Syrian Desert—
Another microcosm

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
