Treasure Island

(A Collection of Select Works... / The City That Never Sleeps)

Candles Crossing Rubicon...


Counterclockwise....a movement Destiny won't deign
Just another chimerical walk-away........from reality;
One more chance to make the same mistakes....again
A creative way to say that you were...just making sure;
The reason why wise mind's and kind soul's die bitter.

.......................and lonely, so lonely, but...
.......................don't you ever look back...
.......................march on, soldier forward-
.......................your ashes are imminent...
.......................prepare your atonements...
.......................for the birth of lifes' After'...
.......................into Emmanuels' Garden...
.......................we will dance, we will sing...

Read, trust His Book, , heed His Word;
our Faith 'n Heart, His Gardens seeds

__________ A S ____________

Ther'll be nothing that Life denies you,
that'll not resurface in Death, unto you,
that the cards of Destiny have dealt you,
if Destiny...has so bequeathed it to you',
so long as you've bore your Crosses well.


You may cross Rubicon now, my friend,
............................................. .. go now!

Poem of the Day

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;
