Treasure Island

Maybe I Will Forever Seek To Find


a few words that speak right through humanity,
for something that is not written in any poem or dictionary
that blows away like leaves in the wind

when eternity lies in a drop of dew,
when I hold onto the transience of a flower,
the breathtaking of the rising sun
and at times when you do hold my hand.

For all of these things I do not have the right words
and to another they may seen mere purposelessness
but the meaning of existence keeps on beaconing
like the white morning star twinkling in the distance

Maybe I will forever seek to find
a few words that speak right through humanity.

Poem of the Day

poet John Gay

Friendship, as love, is but a name,
Save in a concentrated flame;
And thus, in friendships, who depend
On more than one, find not one friend.

A hare who, in a civil way,
