Treasure Island

Catching Shadows By Nightwatch


By nightwatch, shadows hide
until sleep is cast upon the eyes,
and senses of those waiting
for shadows to present themselves.

And they wait, night after night,
suspicious minds lost from dream
who suffer the naked strangeness
from earths un-godly substances.

Morning arrives, and all the eyes
who spent their night watching-
will realize that shadows of night
never guise to the cynical eye.

The world is full of meat and drink,

In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
