Someone recently asked me how I started to write, and I thought of Henry Miller whose writings (about writing and himself, well mostly about himself) made me want to tell my story too.

I wrote a poem to Henry several years ago which I posted early on. So I’ll re-post it now and wish everyone a happy weekend.

A Song to Henry Miller

A song to Henry Miller
To setting out on the road
To the spirit in the glass
And to the hand that raises it

To the future shining
Like the light of the sun upon us

To the days gone by
To their continuation
In us and all of ours

And the days go on
The years they pass by
And the end is nearing
Yet it is not

So raise your glass again
To setting out on the road
To setting out on the light.
