As I made my way with trepidation, I saw many wonders around that narrow path. It was a path worn by many trips back and forth to the rushing river where the women washed the clothes of their families. They tucked their skirts and waded into the water and proceeded to scrub using the river rocks as washboards. The birds were singing and there were many jungle sounds creating a latin concert of accompaniment. There was a joy that washed over this setting and resounded against the trees. The breeze itself caressed the moods of all working so hard each day. How could they be joyful under such drudgery? They existed in another realm while at the same time contributing to this one. They existed in the abode of their Beloved.

the breeze sings praises

the river carries us away

only light

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.
