Kilmacduagh Monastery

 

You don’t need a guide, just follow the pa of the ancient Irish countryside
Cold rain keeps the island green, to preserve a timeless scene
Saint Coleman, son of Duagh
Founded this monastery in the 7th century
When walking the grounds, silence is the only lecture that can partially explain
The routine of a venerable abbot

Bridges of Cleveland

There’s a red moon rising
On the Cuyahoga River
Rolling into Cleveland to the lake

There’s an oil barge winding
Down the Cuyahoga River
Rolling into Cleveland to the lake

Hoi An, Vietnam

Hoi An makes a traveler aware of all five senses: the unrelenting sun, an amalgamation of smells from the market, hawkers peddling their goods, scooters and pedestrians weaving a never ending tapestry on the streets, silence in a temple courtyard, peasants and tourists, spicy noodles and a cold beer, another day in Hoi An.
