Treasure Island

Altair Laahad


it's scary this world!


Two butterflies had wings
colored like rainbows
in warm sunlight, grazing
the nectar of life
on a carpet of flowers
joyfully.
Once bored of the landscape,
their wings fluttered up a high eucalyptus tree,
gazed to an endless ocean ahead
and the high mountains back
as they sighed ' It's scary this world'

Far south the lift,
