Treasure Island

RIC S. BASTASA


what happens instead is that we remember


we take a walk
since we like to forget
what happens instead
is that
we remember

imaginations fly like birds
like dreams
becoming unbelievable
growing roses in the skies
flying kites during a storm

i admire your courage
getting out of the house when
the rain pours
taking a boat without a paddle
alone
when the waves are getting bigger
you sail out there
not fishing

you have read about Jonah
swallowed by that big fish
you want it
you check it out
you look for the sea,
the fish
and now offers your own body
your faith.

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,

In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
