Treasure Island

Jeff Rushton

____________, I see in you.

, I see in you
I see in you the reality of my dream.
I see in you the embryo of a heavenly being.
I see in you a heart of passion and gold.
I see in you many stories untold.
I see in you a fear of those things forgiveness has consoled.
I see in you a wall built to protect an, oh so precious heart.
I see in you the tranquillity of a not so distant being.
I see in you the matriarch of a heaven bound progeny.
I see in you the example of celestial entities.
I see in you a forgiving and forgiven history.
I see in you the spirit of the truly living.
I see in you a wisdom of experience, touched by books and their deliverance.
I see in you the comfort of a security blanket.
I see in you the caring of a tear-ridden teddy bear.
I see in you the emotions of a caged mountain lion in err.
I see in you every thing a perfect being can bring.
I see in you eternity.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
