she walks
the shadows
of her dreams
searching for
a truth,
a meaning
that only
one can give.
will she ever
know the meaning
of it all. the pain,
the undeniable pleasure
in each moment.
how will she find
a way out.
like alice falling
through the
rabbit hole
she searches
for an end,
the light,
to bring meaning
to it all. forever
she will wander alone,
helpless making
herself known.
if to noone but herself
she will discover.

We need meaning in our life. With it, all can be magical.

It was good, at least you'll know yourself, if no one else does.

Hello Islander –

This is a note to tell you I’m genuinely happy to see you on the Island. I founded the Island originally as a temporary destination for those of us set adrift when Poetry Thursday sunk. But the Island has flourished… because of writers, like you, who come to enjoy the tropical breeze, and just write -- for the sheer pleasure of it! So, the beaches remain open, and all are most welcome!

Poetry Thursday is now ReadWritePoem. Check them out if you haven’t. The crew at Totally Optional Prompts is doing a fine job. Both are excellent writing destinations.

I am slowed a bit with back pain. This has hampered my time at my computer -- so, I have not been able to read many of the posts. I will catch up when I’m steadier at the helm. I am dictating this to my wife, who will kindly post it for me. Kathy is a dear!

See you on the island. I have a prompt for this Friday I think should spark some fun and interesting writing.

May your muse be kind…
