standing in the shade
a glimpse of home filters through
shift of summer breezein the longing, light
shining down on the journey
home is in your handpathway leading home
gliding over sea surface
spyglass safe return
one single impression

for josiah...
bedside vigil
uttered prayers desperate
please don't go
unreal world
night is daytime, sounds incessant
that keeps you alivepray for breath of hope
hanging on each spoken word
nap in waiting room
life's fragile balance
hovering between two worlds
one hand keeps you hereplease, pray for Josiah.

looking up, i see
a journey toward heaven
one step at a timeover timeworn stairs
sea of humanity flows
longing for the view


one single impression
