Treasure Island

A LONG JOURNEY ALONG A NARROW PATH


Can love exist on the back of a pack mule?
Occasionally resting to drink in the hopes of a dream
Exhausted and weary, dreary the journey
Thirsting unperturbed with no in-between
Travelling light with a heavy conscious
Hasten the pace, a quick spur of the mule
Within this small package lies something precious
And, the baggage it brings belongs only to you

    Wide vision and broadmind is enough to walk a long long time in the narrow path it dosen`t effect, nice job. (Report) Reply

    Though it is narrow, it is everything! This narrow path of human life is beautifully penned! Nice work. (Report) Reply

    Nice piece of conscious-craft with word-art. Yes, a narrow path but if relativity applied...the narrowness expands so wide...seems to be a drink not only exhaust-maker. It also can carry us piercing the galaxy throughout a single night. Good poem. 10++++

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
