Treasure Island

Plague Rose


Contemplating Life


Life is simple
We live and die
Never knowing
What we'll find
When we're gone
Or where we were
In the life
We lived before
Never happy
Never joyous
Always questioning
Always curious
Trying to explain
What should not be
Stealing from life
Her mystery
As a childish
Younger brother
Would claim
The world as his
In this way
We take from others
The right to fear
What our eyes
May miss
Yet even though
The ones that think
Rely on truth and fact
There are those
That do not blink
And keep their faith
In GOD intact
Life is simple
As I've said
No matter what
You may believe
Morning shines
And night is dim
To live a life
You simply breathe

poet Geoffrey Chaucer

The firste stock-father of gentleness,
What man desireth gentle for to be,
Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
