Treasure Island

Eloida Capuno


Ante Mortem


before the Grim Reaper
beckons
we live we laugh
we love we cry
we cheat we pray

we go from here
to there
from good to bad
bad to good
bad to worse

we run our life
the way we choose
or choose to let others
run it
until the end is met

Poem of the Day

When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock
And you hear the kyouck and gobble of the struttin' turkey cock
