Treasure Island

Emotional Pathways


Delving into memory's storage boxes, searching for ideas,
reciting old poetry.
Mixed together with piles of faded images, selecting and
choosing certain thoughts is, at times, very difficult.
Wandering the long, black hallways with a flashlight,
leaves a lot to be desired.
Only certain things come to mind as they are illuminated,
the rest is encased and written from a capsule of
unconsciousness.
Knowing the differences of nightmare pastimes, does little
for emotional ties bound back then.
Counting steps silently, hesitating sometimes, searching
for bearings to find the way through life and it's
anxieties.

Thinking of strengths and weaknesses contained in each person.
How many times, events are overcome because a friend walks
into your life with a helping hand.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
