Treasure Island

Autumn Winds

(July 22 1993 / Sanfrancisco, California)

A Shooting Star


A shooting star
Makes it's way across the sky
A traveler in the placid night

Upon that star
Lay a million wishes
Waiting to become true

We hope
It will grant our wish
Like a genie in a bottle

We wish
And wish upon that
Incandescent ball of glowing dreams

All though
It's futile we still
Wish and hope and dream

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
