Treasure Island

JAMES T. ADAIR


Daydreaming


Birds fly
The horizon meets the sky
babies still cry

Flowers Bloom
There's still a moon
Songs have a tune

Girls Dance
And dream of romance
Men notice and glance

Bees Buzz
We think back to what was
Just because

Water splashes
Rain falls against sashes
Tears fall from our lashes

Coins jingle
people still mingle
Some wish they were single

Things change
and sometimes rearrange
Life can be strange

little ones scamper
clothes go in the hamper
Sisters pamper

Happy makes smile
Sadness lingers a while
Some walk down the aisle

Sun shines
and later reclines
and sip wines

We pay our dues
Some have the blues
and wait for good news

Wheels of fortune spin
and some never win
That's a shame and a sin

Wind blows
And nobody knows
until it comes and goes

Mothers love
As does God above
Soft as a dove

Elderly ache
and recall each mistake
they ever did make

Kindness if free
As it ever should be
Would you agree?

Children play
and pass time away
and wait for their day

True Friendship mends
and makes amends
and never pretends

True love lasts
some say love lasts forever
some insist it does never

Music sounds
and reverberates and rebounds
and lifts up our downs

Shiny things gleam
may not be what they seem
might be just a dream

Flowers wilt
pretty things decay
some last for only a day

Hearts never age
and remain on the stage
with each turning page

Doors open
Some doors close
Truth will eventually expose

Love relies on fate
Ever we wait
Please don't be late

Poem of the Day

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
