MOBILE BAY…a poem

I watched the sun’s last rays

Cast across Mobile Bay

And felt the warmth of the summertime wind

Blessed did I feel

In this place, so surreal

And for a time, I could breathe once again

The weight of the world

Lifted and unfurled

As my mind glides on the pelican’s wings

Waves gently caress

Where these bare feet rest

And inside, with the seagulls, I sing

Mobile Bay, Alabama, Shoreline, Shore

Little did I know

That long, long ago

As a young boy my roots were set

Yet my life moved on

Away and beyond

But my home – I will never forget
