Thoughts On Being There For Others
I wanted to write a poem about arriving on an island and climbing the mountain at its centre and arriving at the summit. Ideally, the cinquain should be visually centred to give it a visual identity as well as a lyrical one.
I found a cinquain where the basic verses had a connecting word so I am going to attempt this with just basic centring, with a screenshot of the centred text as the Vocal editor does not yet include justification although I am sure it will eventually come.
The music is "An Ending (Ascent)" by Brian Eno from "Apollo"
Leaving The Sea
Through The Green Lush Forest
To The Foot Of The Great Mountian
To See The View
The Island, The Sand, See
The Ocean Surrounding This Land
I Am The King
Of This Island Of Mine

So lovely, I felt the connection to each different part, the ocean, the sand, the forest, the mountain. Wonderful words, thank you my friend :)

You are painting a world I wish to visit, a beach I long to rest upon in the shadow of a mountain full of promise. I love reading your work, Mike! It is always so welcoming, inspiring, and sophisticated.
