Treasure Island

Chris Leermakers

(13/10/1974 / Melbourne, Australia)

The Brush:


We Started Off Unannounced
Made Gradual Progressions
We Lived And Traveled
At Countless Destinations
Though We Live In The Subconscious
Our Minds Travel Far And Wide
At Times, We Can’t Discover
The Soul Reasons Why We Hide
Experience, Love And Freedom
Is What We’re Searching For
Even Though We Find It
There Still Remains A Door
To Life There Is A Catch
To Things Unseen Or Heard Of Before
But If They Make A Match
We Seem To Yearn For More

Take Life As It Comes
Accept Your Limitations
Be Careful Of The Bounds
Of Countless Destinations
Even Though We’re Intelligent
We Still Lack Time For Living
At Times We Can Be Careless
And Misjudge In What We’re Giving
Be Still My Restless Heart
And Chase Away The Blues
It’s Time To Re-Enact
Perspectives Of Your Views
Again We Paint A Picture
And Try Not To Regret
The Things That You Have Painted
The Brush Cannot Forget…

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
