Treasure Island

Guillermo Veloso

(September 25 1962 / New York City)

Geckos Climb


Geckos climb
Pasted on the walls
Silent witness to the day’s progress
Weed Wackers and Cloud/ cat and sun/ aquarium waterfall and creeks edge
Silent fisherman hauls in his wooden catch
Day passes in silence....
The days are slower as a child
Quiet as the world labors...
The sun is gentler and the birds are friendlier
As the old come out to play

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

Only in sleep I see their faces,
Children I played with when I was a child,
Louise comes back with her brown hair braided,
Annie with ringlets warm and wild.
