Treasure Island

Gregory Allen Uhan

(December 24,1987 / Warren, Michigan)

Hello Have Mercy - Farewell Have Mercy

Hello have mercy
farewell have mercy
hello memory farewell
hello misery farewell

hello Life, as upon arrival we greet.
farewell Death, as from each other
we depart, never to meet.

the unseen candle's endless flame:
Beginning's perpetual passing;
Creation's ever burning start;
Becoming's self fulfilling prophetic pull;
Birthed into Death's black hole prison bardo.

Phantasmagoria of Madness's
endless panoramic blitz:
the never ceasing hurdles,
tackling Mind manifestations.

Awaiting the stoic senator's
sentinels of judgment and suspicion:
the clouded iron gates of persecution and bliss:
the potent allure of the storybook's ivory pearl ending:
the fable's inevitable stoning.

Reading Life by starlight;
Self intrinsic Truth inscribed:
Sky's vast volume of translations:
Self transcending syntax of the stars;
life saving death erasing

Opening up to the light's endless arms,
weaving space time fabric though the fibers of the flesh.
A solar bright soul, soulful burning star.

hello memory farewell
hello happiness farewell
farewell self have mercy
hello self have mercy

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.
