Out Of Reach

Walked across a pretty flower, thought I'd hold it in my hand
So I knelt down as to grab it, but the flower turned to sand
Tried to carve it as a castle, walls and towers, gates and moat
But the tide washed it away, I had to chase it down by boat

Mike, for me, is an outstanding, brilliant, and very, very talented poet.. Amongst his nine poems published until now at PH, I cannot really speak about his craft in detail, but all I can say is that if you read his poems they will leave an IMPACT upon you.. His imagination is brilliant, and he is innovative and a wonderful poet... Give him a read, for all my money, you won't be disappointed! !
