"Life's no fun if you're not insane, otherwise you grow up to be an accountant." -Moi

Marooned upon and island
cast away on lonely shore
free from all distractions
my pen inhibited no more

Upon my tiny island
the fruits of knowledge grow
and impart to me the mysteries
of life’s great ebb and flow

I hear the songbirds
singing in the trees
and watch with avid interest
the busy little bees

Among the long wild grasses
dancing lively in a gale
little rabbits scurry
with twitching cotton tails

Alone upon my island
watching waves all blue and bold
I listen to Mother Nature
and write down all I’m told

The author's comments:
I was sitting on the jungle gym which was completely surrounded by water because of rain. There was just a tiny path of dryness so I could get up the later. I had gone there with the intention of writing poetry and this kind of just popped into my head.
