Treasure Island

Lorraine Margueritte Gasrel Black

(July 12,1952 / New York City)


If trust could be as right as rain

then I could believe in promises again

If trust is faith in the great divine

behind the clouds the stars still shine

    Trust is only a five letter word, but it still holds a
    lot of power. Without trust life would be fruitless.

    The poem felt completed to me..I couldn't think of anymore lines to add to it.Sometimes a short poem will say more than a long poem.Haiku are very good examples of a universe of meanings in a poem isn't a haiku but it says alot in several different ways if you analyze it instead of taking it verbatim..thank you for your comment..
