Islands are bodies of land surrounded on all sides by water (a poem)

Yes, I have been watching Lost again…

That’s the traditional definition
we all grew up with

When we’re all grown up
we create our own islands
from wood, metal, and glass
with concrete in place of water

My island is nothing special
it is surrounded by dozens just like it

Wherever I go
I see islands everywhere

    1. Thanks! (Of course, in Seattle, they’re increasingly expensive islands, which is why I no longer live in Seattle.)
