Treasure Island

Debora Short

(August 4 / Florida)


It began with a lovely meal
Scrumptious Mahi-Mahi
Fried green tomatoes
Picturesque Lake Douglas
Distant red clay banks
Flanked with art-kissed cedars
Water-crafts of every sort
Filled with freedom’s revelers
A Tuscan-like sunny
Love of life
Dancing on glistening
Waters of rural life
Thirty years
Of memories
Play up on
Our private mountaintop
Star blessed
Drive - in theatre
John Deere Gator
Parked and witnessing a
Heavenly red, white & blue
Sparkling salute

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

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,
