Treasure Island

Lost Peter Pan

Thinking about relationships - already
lost contact with Peter Pan, my brother,
who threatened to tell my beloved bad
things about me, his younger sister

I always take all threats seriously, took
the email menace straight to my beloved
who said he was not interested in any
stories about me, his wife, therefore

He recommended I break off all contact,
if any nasty gossip reached my beloved,
he would blame ME for allowing a threat
to our domestic felicity to be part of my life

Given that Peter Pan had already insulted
me, I had to agree, could not take the risk
that he might disrupt my little family,
farewell to my brother because

My beloved takes priority…

[Losing family members are sad – luckily I was given a new
older brother who has never turned his back on me, thank
you Ivan for being the older brother I miss so much]

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
