Treasure Island

Jacquie StewartHeimann

He who is

You glance across the room
You see him, you smile
He who touched your life, built your soul

Basking you in their warm glow
Memories surface, remembering
The simpler times of life...

When tickle fights, lincoln logs
And piggy back rides
Brought joyous laughter...

Strong arms enfolding you
Sledding down a hill
Brought solace and security...

Fixing broken toys
And building doll beds
Brought veneration and respect...

Scaring bed monsters
And dispersing fear of storms
Brought admiration of his courage...

Long bike rides, warm donuts
And cozy family meals
Brought peace in life...

Kissing boo boos, wiping tears
And changing frowns to smiles
Brought overwhelming love...

He glances up
His eyes touch you
Dancing with love and laughter

The reflection of his soul
The window of his heart
And you lose yourself

In the love...
In the man...
Who is your grandfather

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.
