Treasure Island

Theodora (Theo) Onken

(Washington State)

My Seattle~


It was a Seattle mist that fell here today
Swallowed up by the states giant size and parched ground
A desert of a place on the edge of the Panhandle
It left me longing for Mt. Rainer and Puget Sound;

Where miles and miles of flat land & oil wells make up the scenery
Where the lakes and their water are a muddy- red
Where Rattle snakes & Scorpions take up residency
It's like Hell- almost- like sleeping in the Devils bed;

But it was a Seattle mist that fell here today
So unlike the sizzling sun that usually comes 'round
Baking the land & our skin into beyond done
Making me long even more for Mt. Rainer & Puget Sound;

For Lake Washington and the Space Needle
For fresh seafood instead of a Texas steak
For Woodland Park Zoo & the Public Market
For the ever true blue colour of my favorite lake;

It was a Seattle mist that fell here today
Making me realize just what my heart has known all along
Home is truly where ones heart's abides
And from m heart- i will always sing- my Seattle song;

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
