Treasure Island

RIC S. BASTASA


enter her garden of flowers


now you may enter her garden of flowers
but first you must be wise

do not think that what look like flowers are
nothing but flowers

man be wise, there are those that look like flowers
but they are something else

do not just pick them up, think twice think thrice
in her garden
there are some flowers which are bred in guilt
and if you are not so careful enough
pick another one

that one is meant for your death.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
