on the pier
the old farmer tells us
how to fish

as the tide ebbs
fishermen appear
on the sand

dusk lake
sinking into darkness
fishermen’s voices

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.

  1. our little friend enjoying the sun, the breeze, the water, and, if he’s lucky, maybe even the struggle of catching a fish or two. I hope mom or dad tells him how to clean the fish in order to, gulp, cook and then eat the catch. Many lessons.
