    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: :

    So glad to have encountered Barry Middleton. He cares... about the writing, the speaker, the reader, and the content of his work. His poetry ranges from musical and rhyming, to analytical free verse, to poems that evoke memory, the past, and witness to history. As a fellow poet, Barry has been an inspiration to me and I appreciate this thoughtful commentaries, passion, and critical advice.

    Wording of thoughtful, innovative, sensitive feelings in the poems of Barry Moddleton runs as clear waters do in peaceful creeks and you feel its dew painting your senses.

    Marianne, I have lived in Sarasota since 1989. I commuted to Venice Hospital for work. My memory is poor by I vaguely remember The Wedgwood. Yes indeed it is a small world.

Best Poem of Barry Middleton

Letter To Myself

I wish that I had written you
when I was young and strong and wise
I knew that I would never die
I'd face the world without disguise

but as I pen this note to you
I have grown old and tired and weak
but I recall that hopeful youth
it is to you that I must speak

I can but say what I was told
to quietly sit and watch the crowd
and see the good and evil there
and think before I speak aloud

and though I wrote it long ago
I would not take my own advice
and that has put me on this path
with wishing that I had thought twice

I've come to ...

Pantomime And Song

did you ever hear a pantomime
yes that may seem impossible
but music plays within my mind

saints and sinners gather there
and it may seem improbable
the devil sneers and sits upon a chair

on His throne the God of Love
