I was born in 1946 in a small town at the edge of the Mississippi delta. The town and surrounding countryside would have been great subject matter for Norman Rockwell paintings. Much of that landscape and many of my experiences there are reflected in my poetry. As time progressed I realized I was blessed to have been born in interesting times and in an interesting place.

I was educated in the parochial school system in Mississippi and graduated High School in 1964. I attended Spring Hill College in Mobile Alabama and graduated from Southern Illinois University in Carbondale Illinois with a BS Degree in Psychology in 1969.

After graduation, I worked as a school teacher ... more »

    Though this has happened, do not think of me as an unfriendly woman.

    Barry, I do miss you terribly as many might feel the same on here. Your presence through your poetry was so enriching. Your love of nature and the world never ceased to amaze me. I never said goodbye to you, couldn't find the right words to say, I know you are at peace now, my friend. You are one of the angels now. Aqua Flower (Rainbow flower now)

    I see in your reply to Marianne Reninger below that you live in Sarasota. I went to Sarasota twice because of a man named Elling Eide, who founded a private library dedicated to Chinese poetry and art. It was written up two weeks ago in the New York Times. The library was established to house Mr. Eide's book collection. There was a beautiful botanical garden on the site, abutting on that crescent beach of white sand. I visited the garden while Elling Eide was alive, before the Center was actually established. My brother is a board member of the Elling Eide Center. (Elling Eide was his classmate at Harvard.) . Here is a link to the New York Times article about it: :

Best Poem of Barry Middleton

The Lonely Time

I cherish early morning,
the lonely time.

To wait and watch the glow,
almost sublime,

rising into the night
until the hour

of sleepy tousled sunrise
and its power.

Morning nurtures hope
lifting the pall

of raveled darker times
that I recall.

Morning is comfort's muse,
the world anew,

and I alone in it
till dawn breaks through.
