  29.     

Meeting Stranger

The former green beret
turned author
talked writing
talked books and self publishing
talked about a gold star father.

I prodded -
I preened -
I offered support.

Never had I intended
to spend a morning
with this man.

God sends us strangers.

Was this man an angel
with the disability
of an arcade?

Was I listening
for God’s whisper
where I did not expect
to hear?

How hard it is
to stop for strangers
with a heart focused
on a million things.

Milk and Cookies

Milk and cookies end the day
A most strange way to welcome night
But night comes and sight is lost
The immediacy of cold and sweet
Seems to help the inevitable surrender to sleep
When will's tryanny is for the most part less or lost
Milk and cookies a good institution to help end the day
Especially when it seemed to move
Very much in its own determined way.

  31.     

On a Senior Master Sergeant

Quietly she stands in line
Behind those of clearly lower rank
Her strips of seven noticeable against their three - four
Her face is taught she does not talk or smile
Carries a silent sadness about her
that takes my greeting with good accord
As she gathers food to bag and goes out the door
Captive pilgrim towards an eighth stripe more
Not even lunch allowed to break
The frightful pace of march.

  32.     

On Being Trapped

Sometimes we are trapped
Better not to feel but to react
The lieutenant who under fire called a meeting of his men
To another realm of God's universe did his indecision send
With feelings will come the true safety of the day
But first you may have a dragon that you have to slay.
