~ To Life Rewritten ~

What ever happened to your dreams

Which were once your future

Yet now seem destined to unforgiving reality

Is it not time for your mind and body

To birth itself in change

To restart your journey

That wants for you and more

That reaches deep inside

To reignite your very core

So take my hand and let us see

If your dream is just a dream

Because maybe round the corner

Is your Entirety

Editorial Reviews

Michael Cook loves women. He loves everything about them; and he loves everything that is infused with their subtle essence, something so powerful that he has no power to resist. Even the earth itself is one big beautiful woman to him. These are not the poems of rambunctious and eager youth, but of a thoughtful man preoccupied by aging, by his own limitations, but more importantly by all that is beautiful in the world, particularly its feminine forms. Indeed, when he stares at his own sad face in a pool, he must break that image by tossing a pebble. His longing, perhaps a longing we all have, is "To be loved once more before we die." A breathtaking collection.James Tipton, Chapala, Mexico 2016James Tipton is an International Award Winning Poet, Writer, and Columnist.
