Treasure Island

Patti Masterman


Watch-Ghost


Imagine the ghost I would become,
The ghost that's yet to be,
While my body sleeps the sleep
Of death- yet I am free.

Imagine eyes, that watch the dawn
Un-cumbered by the frame
That bore, close to a century-
But no more claims a name.

Imagine loving presence guards
The living flesh of one,
Who once upon the earth had forged
A bond: in blood was done.

Imagine me with you always,
More than ever before;
No counterfeit of life or death
Can ever close that door.

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,

In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
