Treasure Island

RIC S. BASTASA


THIS EARLY MORNING./.....


this morning
thoughts come rushing
like
passengers of
a train on a
rush hour

yet everyone inside
either reads
a book

makes a blank stare
on the window

avoids seeing one
another

and no one is saying
a word
or two

it is like this
at this hour

i am in a journey
and i have no word to say
to everyone i meet

we are on the same train of
silence
we adore silence
with all respect

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
