Treasure Island

Joseph Narusiewicz

(9/29/50 / So St Paul, Minnesota)

Simple Existence


a glance into the fairytale
shudders shed French light
Floors of cherrywood memory
Bronx snow drifts like Christmas
Music draws pictures of the stars
the air is like your silk eyes
my brain is full of avenues
I shall die a romantic

you are a home
decorated with silk stockings
Orange Picasso checkers
Up state New York by Ithaca
Greek restaurants
Bookstores
Coffee shops with windows
a fireplace with oak and birch

day by day sobriety
serenity prayer world
quiet places
safe rooms
I'm done going fast
Darling lets take a walk
poetry is divine
gardens with smiles

a simple existence

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
