while the site is transitioning   it is a good time to write words that might drift away   an exercise in zen poetry   no permanence




a man i can love

 

until colin's grandfather   i never knew

an older person

that did not cause me 

 

to feel little   insignificant   

invisible

i never had a mentor

 

nor an elderly confidante   i

never had

a conversation

 

of equals   how i love colin's grandfather

for being

the man in my life 

 

i never had   all with quiet words

and silences

This is truly Zen-like. You have Collin's grandfather as a mentor. I have you. :)
