Treasure Island

Work To Play


Take Life For Today
Don’t Let It Go To Waste
Make The Memories Stay
Deliberate To Haste
I Hear The Morning Cry
The Birds, They Sing Then Fly
Catch Fish With Some Rods
And Overcome Impossible Odds
Let’s Drink The Great, Sweet Wine
To Join Us When We Dine
Feel The Music Within
Life Too Can Be Devine

I Often Play The Fool
Jump When You Say Go
Race Within The Pool
How I Want To Take It Slow
Yes Fine Tune And Bloom
Fine Tune My Tools
What Ever You Desire
I’ll Always Want More
Let’s Sing And Then Regret
To The Places We Forget
The Times Of Our Great Friends
I Wonder If We Met
Believe In Reincarnation
Keep Potential Alive
Because In The Sea Of Damnation
Only The Strong Minded Survive

When The Fun Is Over
How You Want To Sing
Life Then Can Then Surprise You
Surprise To Anything
Look Up To The Sky At Night
See The Shining Light
Life Again, I See
Infinite And Free
The Potential Vast And Silent
Hope We Aren’t To Late
As We Work To Play
Yes Sometimes We Work To Play
Play Out Our Fate

Know Your Limitations
Life’s The Only Thing I Own
I Know Not What I Want
But How I’m Nearly Grown
Take Me As I Want It
Don’t Give Me All That Sort
Of Rubbish And Assorted Shit
Life Is Way Too Short…

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

70

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
