Eyes On You

My drummer Mickey's wife Susan is a wonder with words. Her poetry is some of the finest in the world. Emery and I are, of course, expecting a son (Declan) any day now. To help add even more excitement to the occasion, Susan penned this beautiful poem for us.


Waiting for you is like
Waiting for the morning
In moonlight

While birds close their
Eyes and wings to rest,
Owls are watching

Watching you
In the dark moon womb
Of your mother

Watching you
Tapping little rhythms
To your father

Imagining a tune -
Your thrush's song -
Here I am - Where are you?

Owls are watching
In your family tree

Wiser for wondering
Who you may be

-Susan Eckman

Peace and Joy to you all this holiday season. If I don't blog between now and the 25th, have a very Merry Christmas!
