Among these ancient oaks of Spanish moss
and inhaled air of salted scent,
Iíve spent much time in solitary contemplation.

I have left tracks upon the shore
while counting dolphins, timing waves, sifting shells through open fingers.

Alone,
Iíve watched each setting sun,
comparing each sunset display to the ones that came before it
and like women,
finding each to have a unique beauty of its own.

Iíve fed seabirds
and like GPS-guided munitions,
they found their target.  
Still, I continued to feed them.

Night has always known the color of my thoughts
and under those eternal, tiny fires
Iíve felt peace, healing, hope.

Life often moves too quickly
and sometimes we need to step off and catch our breath.
I just caught mine.

Hello Michael

You have revealed so much beauty through your words which were a delight to read.  I hope all is well with you.

Take care......Sue

what I like most about you, is your ability to be real....I felt almost selfish reading this, as though I had tucked down on the shore and read from a more personal journal....but thats poetry right? personal journals....you do it with much grace love.... hugsss and all the rest....

(sigh) I think the world tends to make us move rapidly all the time and that can be such a saddening thing indeed, I only wish everyone could stop too for a while and admire the beauty along the primrose path! (big hugggsssssss) God Bless You, sweet friend, this is very special, we all love you so much! You have such a beautiful heart, sweet Michael, thank you for sharing!



May love and light always shine upon you!

Love,
Noah Eaton

In the coming of an Irish Day,
I found this piece of peace.

Rest well, Michael.
