these gardens of time
are written on my heart
a part of me of who i am
.
running through the towering stalks
my brother and me at play
hide n seek catch me if you can
we ran and laughed til the end of day
.
oh i wouldn't have it any other way
.
through these gardens of mine
i often wander the afternoon sun
shining down on me as i sit here
on the porch exploring simpler times
.
no bills to pay
no traffic jams
no cell phone
no tv
.
i wonder how we ever made it
without technology oh but how
i love to linger meandering
through these gardens of time
.
~ poem "These Gardens of Time" by
Michael Traveler, author/poet

 

AUTHOR'S NOTE:

When I sit down to write, whether poem or story or novel, I strive to touch the soul and the imagination and move the heart.

The universal human condition calls to me. It speaks to me. It's a kind of magic, the words, the hearts of so many people speaking to me and I reach for my pen to put their words to paper.

These miraculous wonders, heartfelt - some beautiful, some tragic - are woven into words, painting a picture for the soul to feel, the eye to see and the heart to feel ...

What happens next is nothing short of a miracle.  Folks write to me and say that what was written was exactly what they needed at that moment.  They ask, how did you know?

The answer is simple.  I didn't know, but God did.  He knew you needed those words.  He knew exactly what you needed.

He always does.
