Not sure why, but I kind of dig writing about our shared spiritual dynamic. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that we’re all quite impressive, and I’m humbly and gratefully part of that. An Honorable Mention recipient for the Fernando Rielo XXXII World Prize for Mystical Poetry, my works have appeared in The Poet’s Haven, Sheepshead Review, Balloons Lit. Journal, and others. I love sunsets. I used to be a TV broadcaster, and even taught high school English. My website is www.widewide.world.
There’s a foot high ceramic fisherman
at my window sill, hand on a ship’s wheel.
No sea to see, but he looks out to the rising sun.
I like to think, quite the catch.
Collected him some years back almost trash
in a white elephant gift exchange.
Collected him because he had broken in half
just as he became mine with other fractures.
I glued him back, no longer broken,
and now barely notice the cracks.
And, everyday, we look out at day’s start.
And at the glass, he’s quick to remind me
in his own patient way,
keep my eyes open
and see what I already have.
