Treasure Island

Reality Check


Im greeted with a smile
and a “welcome back”

I check for my usual spot
and finding it available
I sit down

I no longer need to
order
and even remember
beer bringing
waitress’s name

I open the paper
Checks the news

As she passes by
I return her smile
and as she returns
I check her out

As you were
Move along
Nothing special

All is well

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
