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

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
