It’s Here

This is is where I live – it’s here . I miss you . The land called Michigan is mysterious , paradoxical , soulful , wild – we all have lake in our eyes here . It’s here too that I think of you … your stories , your poetry , your photos , your places . I want to tell you something , it’s this , you are not far from me . I’ve come to know you as friend in discovering the dance of your words and spirit . I want to tell you that I remain so deeply grateful … the waters surge … and you are here .

with love glorious,

meg

  1. Beautiful place, and you’re a pretty wee gal too. You could be one of the fae folk for sure *smiles*. I enjoyed the poem too. Nice hearing Patti recite it. The Cloud sends you days of delight and happiness.

  2. Meg, I hope you don’t mind, or that it wasn’t too presumptive of me. I took this post a little personally…

    …and it was beautiful. I know it far, far transcends that as well, and because of that am touched even more. I love the way it highlights the magnificence of each, while somehow calling to attention the beauty of the entire constellation. I feel privileged to have wandered over here, and to be in such fine company…

    Much Love to you–
    Michael

    1. Dear Michael , my very dear friend …this was written for you personally … Not many follow my writings but that isn’t important as the ones who do are so very special to me not only as writers and artists but even more as true friends able to speak to the heart of what this life we share on earth is about ….you inspire me to express the Divine , to be more spiritual , to not hide even when misunderstood , to share love , to be love , to love , to embrace compassion , to follow heart and to write ….you are a dazzling gift to me and I know to many others and I am humbled by your sentiment here …I have been near the waters and woods for awhile and miss you and will visit very soon …thank you is for you ! I love you , megxxx
