Biography of Mike Barrett

Mike Barrett poet

I'm a Canadian, a native Maritimer, born in Saint John, N.B. in 1943, currently residing in Embrun, Ontario, a rural farming community 23 miles east of Ottawa, the nation's capital.

Throughout my life I've had a keen interest in matters spiritual, paranormal, metaphysical, philosophical, scientific, and mechanical. Additionally, I've always been interested in reading, writing, and appreciating the beauty one finds in life be it evoked through relationships, nature, the arts, or the revelation of truth through dreams, contemplations or divine insights. Over the years I've had a number of poems flow through me which I have chosen to share the written version of through this site.

Spiritually, I'm an Eckist, a follower of ECKANKAR's teachings [see Eckankar.org]. Life to me is an amazing experience, a voyage of eternal unfoldment, of infinitely growing one's awareness of both Self and God. I've also set up my own web-site, http: //we-r-1.info/, and invite you to check it out.

A reader may make a copy of any poem for his/her use; however, any commercial use of these poems requires my personal approval as do any translations, modifications, adaptations, video creations, adaptations, etc., etc.

A Brook

Hear water breaking in a brook
Over rocks that are timeless with age -
A sound near as old as the earth itself
With a meaning beyond any sage.

Hear water breaking in a brook
Over rocks that are gray with the years -
An elixir of youth to those ancient stones
Is this water of heaven shed tears.

[Hata Bildir]
