Treasure Island

Patti Masterman


Almighty hidden night


Almighty hidden night
Beheld by silent stars
That linger in our dream,
Calm spoils of highways blue
In skies celestial where
A history lay in ruins.

The heavy steps of time
Will part the whispered hours
In twilight incantations
Our thoughts lost,
Secret treasures
Poured out, like gold libations.

Come smile again with me
And marvel on the shore,
Our eyes will play the tribute
To beloved hearts desires,
Set sail the burning ship
With crimson funeral pyres.
