Treasure Island

Collection January 25,2012


rainy night
i ruffle through
the old letters

as he works
the piano tuner talks
about weather

haiku beauty
nature picks a rose
to decorate its vase

haiku beauty
nature picks too to ink
its reflective moment

the whirring sound and
two hundred years come down
in a log

the bunch of bananas
God makes himself
feel so real

he black cat
tiptoes across like
a red traffic sign

first day of new year
i sprinkle my house
with ganges water

the lake
i reflect over
the flighty years

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire

But if it had to perish twice,
