A Few Words

When one drifts with the wind,
There's no telling -
How many people
One will touch,
Before -
They find themselves.


In the World today
Everywhere you look -
The air is charged
with emotions.
It is crucial then,
A sense of understanding -
Take its place
Amid the tears
And the


You have a way
of making words
sound like music.
Like gentle waves,
Lapping on a moonlit shore.

Wow Eric! These are wonderful - particularly that last verse - it flows gently just like those waves "lapping on a moonlit shore".

Beautiful Eric! Dare I ask: After reading the last verse, I thought you might be writing this to Elizabeth.

Be well, my friend. And thanks again to you and Elizabeth for my new banner. :~)

Hi Leon, you are more than welcome my friend, things look good over there.

You may well be right about the last verse & Elizabeth. She has a way of inspiring me when I struggle at times. :)

oh wow, Eric. I thought the first was my favorite but then, after reading each part, I love them all.

Eric Valentine said...

Newnorth, thanks for your kind thoughts.

True words - although I bet our perception of emotions may not be as keen as it was centuries ago, but we communicate it further with the aid of technology.

Eric Valentine said...

Technology does have its uses Isadora, so I couldn't agree more. :)

Thank you for your visit here. :)
