mike monahan Poems


the silence of the night is stirred by strong pulses
from the north that cut across the moonlit ocean
the waters shimmer and gleam like gold, as nature
begins her perpetual motion,

Another Year

log fueled fire blazes in a hearth, throwing out intermittent shadows embellishing a darkened room a flickering candle burns through yet another Christmas eve its light reaches out to highlight images of a family past



Oh how I long to hold you tight enshrouded together in day and night,
In our soul we are us as one, blended in light that blocks out the Sun,
In sleep you breathed us out, I inhaled us home, giving pure love our eternal throne,
to the end of time my sweet our dreams will come true, for your love lives in me

Days Of Yesterday

.{ Maureen Dolaghan}

In the golden corn, the sunlit dawns
we lay in each other's arms

I must admit Mike has written the greatest 'winter poem I have ever read. His other poems can only be described as breathtaking.
