Converging

I want to thank you for
your good intentions,
and the food.

I remember Irene
the summer I turned 13 –
her motor cycle accident
and later, the cancer
that took her life.

Some don’t want morning
to come – just running
from age, circumstances
a wall of confusion.

Join me in the morning
light --
I am a walrus heading home.

(c) 2016 Richard L. Provencher
