Tantalizing Release


The fog beckons

beckons me home

home to the conditions

conditions of true peace.


Waves caress the stones

stones of constancy

constancy of my bones

bones with all resiliency.


Smell the salty sea air

air fills my tired lungs

lungs that expand so far

far enough to bring sweet songs.


Hear the gulls cry

cry out to their life

life that rises with the tide

tide takes away the strife.

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.
