Tenants Harbor, Maine - Poem by Random Hero

Life moves slow and fairly leisurely here
Things are less magnified, less serious
People are friendlier, the air smells nice
Like something you wish you could capture in a fragrance

I see lobsterman and wonder what it’s like
To reel in the hard shelled creatures
To awake before the town greets the morning
To revel in the quiet calm before the day begins

The water here is freezing cold, but it awakens you
You feel like you’ve been living life too fast
Too reckless, too ambiguously
It forces you to focus on the present

A famous painter lives near our summer home
His name is not important
He walks his dogs past us, a millionaire living in this quiet town
For the same reason we visit every summer
