Treasure Island

Rainbows And Waterfalls


Even in the darkness of a dream.
The mind can still see.
The vivid colors of rainbows and waterfalls.

The gentle smooth soothing tranquil sound of water falling.
For it there and only there that the soul can be truely at peace
with the world.

There the true colors of life will come shining through.
The comfort of a single thought, will flow across the rock of
the mind, and under the bridge over trouble waters.

Tumbling freely over the edge of the waterfalls of forevermore,
and falling gently without sound into the sea of forgiveness, to common
the trouble water of the soul.

Comforting the mind in the mist of tranquilility of self satisfaction.
Even in the darkness the mind can still see rainbows and waterfalls

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
