An Old Man's Musings

A Poem by JE Falcon

A poem of an old person reflecting on their state of being, while at the ocean's side.


A sunset sea

a windblown tree

and a place to lay my head

the night has come

and I am one

with God

the world is shed.

The stars above

display God's love

And the ocean soothes my soul.

I love this place

this gift of space


to God I’d rather go.

The wind plays tunes

as lullabies

among the branches of this tree

and I feel a yielding

selfless state

flowing over me.

I’ve grown to trust

that the Spirit is here

and I've tried to plant some seeds to sow

but this body is spent

twisted and bent.


to God I’d rather go.

Very nicely rhymed piece here. However, I'm 76, I can still put my palms on the floor without bending my knees, and I ain't ready to check out yet.
