Treasure Island

(brief renderings) Joe Fazio


To My Parents...


Because of who you were and for all the
unanswered questions you left behind, you
compel me to search for more of who I am.

I am forced to explore what lies beneath
the surface of my consciousness.

You have driven me to continually ask...why?
What could I have become? I am likened to a
blind man, stumbling down an unknown path,
searching for what...I do not know.

Now comes the sobering realization that life
is never what it seems to be, but a continuance
of revelations never before know to me.

I know I will not ever fully understand who
you both were.

I am sure of only this:
That the love of your children was without
question...or condition...or reservation.

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.
