Treasure Island

Ben Gieske


Rainbow Falls


(Jackson County, Ky)

We liked to go there
dropp down beside its cascading waters
peer into its collected coolness
sidle up to the edge of its lap
thinking of taking a leap

Seemed like no one ever came ––
but we knew –– that others too
stole to this place
drawn to lean over its lip and flirt
with its rainbow’s end

Our hearts still meld
in the rainbow there
in Jackson County.

    Ben,

    You are such a terrific poet! Thank you for the visit to Jackson County. I found a day like this In Rock Creek Park in Washington, D.C. once...You helped me to remember that happy time.

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust

And pays us but with earth and dust;
