#OctPoWriMo: Oct 22nd-24th

Another friend has died today. 
You make the trek to show support  
and say your last goodbyes. 
I never see you cry. 
You know that they are safe  
in a place without pain or suffering.

OctPoWriMo: October 9th-12th

Green thumbs and calloused hands turn dirt into a bed of flowers. 
I watch you casually sprinkle life into a seed and watch it grow. 
Mother to children and mother nature you share nothing but love. 
I pray that one day my hands will too learn some of what you know.

And as we all age  
the new life shows signs  
of thinking like you  
when you were that age too. 
You are the life blood.  
The necessary pieces  
that help us put together  
who we are  
and where we come from.

I first learned about God, the Spirit, and his Son through the Church,
But only understood Him and all His ways because of you.
You represent what the beating heart of religion truly is,
And I do my best to live my life taking from your cue.

White Noise

It has become a necessary yet unnoticeable passenger on my journey through writing. It’s there in the loud silence that I can concentrate.
