Treasure Island

RIC S. BASTASA


for life is simple and must be lived simply like all the rest


i've seen the face of the
winner

the one who survived from that war
and his triumphant entry in the iron gates of the
old city

he is just one of us
scarred and scared and now simply wants
to stay and just be
one of us

sitting on one of the chairs in the veranda
watching the sunset
drinking beer
smoking a cigar

talking about the mundane event
how to fish
how it feels to gather shells in the seashore
how to make love
for the first time in his life

for life is simple and must be lived simply
like all the rest

nothing special, nothing exaggerated
nothing about any 4th of july

poet Robert Louis Stevenson

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
