Treasure Island

Guillermo Veloso

(September 25 1962 / New York City)

Another Way of Winning


There was a world I built
On foundations of dreams and light
There was a vision I wept
Grasping at walls in the night
Roads taken and turns spurned
Opportunities beckoned, missed and burned
We all walk on paths of our own wander
We all have pains and decisions to ponder
DNA is a helix of life, a connector of dew
DNA has much to explain and the days are few
A greater thread is woven from this
A greater dream to realize bliss
And though it may never come
A dream dreamt is a dream won

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

Only in sleep I see their faces,
Children I played with when I was a child,
Louise comes back with her brown hair braided,
Annie with ringlets warm and wild.
