Treasure Island

Stan Petrovich

(10/27/1950 / Fort Riley, KS)

Celerity


Why must we go so quickly
When not going can get us so much further?
Simple meditation is the way of the world
If one wants to experience the worlds,
The worlds of common decency & a greater wealth than gold.
Find the place of extraordinary happiness
Perfection
And stay there.
One can be a funambulist of infinite wealth
Brain wealth
If we try.

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,
