Treasure Island

Jerry Buckley

(08/07/1957 / Tennessee, USA)

Pink Red You

One persistently pesky pink-red rose,
continues radiant at autumn's close.
Her siblings have retired, all long past red;
just one pink-red rose, one proudly raised head,

One persnickity part-Labrador pup,
starry-eyed tumble of overflowed cup.
Begs to run free, discover better ways,
oh, please don't make me wear the leash today!

One mystical Motown sense of rhythm,
and one pink-red rose in motion with them.
Its fragrance lingers and clings forever,
through one slow-float sequence dreamed together.

One perfectly balanced book of ledger;
mixed ingredients in perfect measure
Secure as a tightly laced running shoe,
oh so irreplaceable, pink red You.

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,

In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
