Treasure Island

Dermot McGarthy


Nature Always Wins


The tricolor of blue,
Mingles with the sea's essence, and,
Newly born memories of you,
Like the cascades of pink and green,
In the after-light of the fountain's hue.

The sound of the waves crashing,
Like deafening applause,
Lauding the star that is,
Our wondrous journey so far.

Following our own Pied Piper,
On a road filled with music, stories, and words,
Crevices, cracks, pot-holes, and ancient herds,
Of spirits that have passed along this way,
Whose whispers on the evening breeze,
Can be heard wondering,
Which way Fate will sway.
