Treasure Island

Heather Burns


A Peaceful Harbor


I have rode the high seas
through many violent storms

Tidal waves crashing around
me
churning against my vessel

The more I learn the better
equipped I am
to handle the storms of life

My ship is resting a peaceful
harbor
returning to sea no more

my peaceful harbor is you

    But taughtly wrapped sails and anchors rust beneath the harbored swells
    And long long glances at horizons
    you curse the calls from hell
    You long for the adventure, the treachery, and comradery
    wishing to cast off sails, and leave at break of day (Report) Reply

    So you are safely anchored in a secure harbour away from the raging storm and rising waves! ! Enjoyed! ! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
