Treasure Island

Romeo Della Valle

(Ageless / Dominican Republic)

Many Times I Wonder


Is there a place where I belong
And which I have searched already
For so long
With fruitless results?
Where are the signs or directions?
I ask myself many times:
Are there any connection
Somewhere on these roads
That indicates the way?
I just keep wondering!

Perhaps there are maps
Which others have found,
Written paths leading to holy grounds,
With buried treasure within...

The chance has arrived
To find and explore this special place
And find the golden door
That would lead me
To my dreamed Angel!

Resisting discoveries beyond
Mortal security and holding on,
Knowing imperfection
Is part of me!

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.
