Treasure Island

Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)


When Talent Comes Young


When talent comes young
when we hope youth won't blow it
when potential is unsung

now or in later years
talent a place deserves
space to strut in the sun...


fame inflates delusions
mirage apparition illusions
reason reality fallacy spun

talent ability credibility stretches
green vigorous foolish infatuations
reject sold hand signs illuminati sung

stupidity sell your soul to music devil
win platinum fame cost flame eternal...

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,

But if it had to perish twice,
