October 2-6, 2016




at times it seems he almost knew

how short were his days to be

his broad strokes so bold, so bright

emphatic laid against excited canvas

as if his life were itself the brush

casting caution to fly on the winds

enthusiastic palette reveling a life

crowded full with joyful solitude

one man, in his canoe, on a lake

rejoicing the abundance of glory

bursting into a life cut short by years

whose echoes ceaselessly resound

like ripples left behind the paddle

that touch on shores as yet unseen
