High Peter Griffin
Peter Griffin

Away from the world’s clamor and free from the heartbeat of the city, I am finally alone on my roof. It has become my atelier in recent months. A strong smell of ethanol from my shellac comforts me as it is a known fragrance. I reach over to wash out my brushes in the washbasin. I watch with fascination as the colors combine and create a grey cloud with little streaks of blue and green. My artist’s frock now looks just about that same color. I hear the velvet sounds of the country life that we have chosen. I never liked the psychedelic vibes of the city and finally we are away. Suddenly, I am possessed with the desire to vociferate this joy and freedom. I bolt to the balcony and yell to the world, “I am happy!”.

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.
