Treasure Island

Almedia Knight Oliver


A Friend of Light


As the earth prepared its meeting with the sky
From a distance, I watched the lonely sun sinking
low down into a reddish-orange glow
While sitting in the dark not trusting the light.

Then along came Patricia, and chased away
loneliness, fears, and all their hosts
She used the means to mine beauty, joy, and grace
That I may feel, taste, and lift my spirit high.


Patricia, (lovingly) or Pat, and my dearest friend:
I remember the first day we met. You
Accepted me and all my grime, even instilled
In me that spirituality (or beliefs) completes
You cared for me as I lay in a fetal position,
staring into space, hoping the nightmare would end!

I didn't know which where to go but, yet you kept in touch
Reached out your hands and picked me up, helped me clean
off the life-time-grime...I put on my fine, and
Stepped into the light!


Patricia Dick-Arnell and Kevin Turner may you be blessed and Graced with compassion and love for each that'll pervade the world!
Stay in the light evermore…

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
