Treasure Island

Joseph Narusiewicz

(9/29/50 / So St Paul, Minnesota)

Ladder to the Stars


Cocoanut candle in the slumbering moon
Reprieve where the tiger sleeps
Serotonin burns the village fire
Roads on the Caribbean island coast
Those moments where saints shine
Ivory roses along the banyan paths
Blue sea so free like the future will be
These dreams are boundless hope
No demon claw shall hold back prophecy

She stays here like ancient light
Rocks of covenant
Purple sage on on the great plains
Mountains that bath in bridal stars
We are the callings of the divine forest
Hear the buffalo herds wild and free
Everything is flowing in the karmic river
I only see the grace of love
Yellow and black with red crimson joy
Green soothes the wings of the weary

Ladder to the stars is there for all

    Ivory Roses.....
    Blue sea so free like the future will be
    What beautiful music and imagery,
    A special appeal this has for me

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
