Treasure Island

RIC S. BASTASA


the suicidal in him


too much intelligence is dangerous
my friend
too much idealism
detached from reality
one gets restless
searching for the Shamala
and the Shangrila

with a little sense of humor
the ability to be
one less of a perfect self
the capacity to laugh
at our errors
to dismiss what is so important
and just take things as they are
dabbling on the
prideless
unselfish away from a self-centered
universe

i guess, he could not have taken
his own life.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
