Local Focus – Global Reach

Posted by MFish

I say this, not as a jest,
As my worries, start to manifest
And I see, both near and far,
That you know not where you are
Or what locations, that are so near,
No longer exist and now, do disappear,
From your memory, which once was grand
But can not provide location, on demand.
What actions, can I try or do,
To make this journey, easier for you?
My heart, is being wrenched from within
And my sanity, is now stretched thin.
What plan has God, made for thee?
For at this moment, I cannot see,
What an outcome, that will become part
Of our life, tearing apart my heart.
Dear God, please help get me through,
This painful process, of what to do.
Prayer and thoughts, to you I say,
No longer keep my fears at bay

Beautifully written— it really captures the sadness and pain of this challenge you and others must be going through. It’s nice that you have writing poetry and your photography as an outlet that you share for all the rest of us to appreciate. Thank you for sharing.

Up very early, wife's still asleep.
Trying to be quiet, as I keep
An early morning time to run
Through the dark, shadowed streets,
Before the rising of the Sun.
It is very quiet, not much noise
Except for some figures
That appear to be paper boys.
I move up the street; a little hill
As my breathing and pulse increases;
I know it always will.
I push harder now, up this slight rise.
My breath appears white and puffy
Before my sleepy eyes.
At the top I take a left,
Down 148th's long, slight decline.
My breathing back to normal,
Now this run is mine.
I finish this early morning run,
Almost 6 taxing miles.
Returning home, my running clothes I shed,
I go into the shower; my wife is still in bed.
Finish the ritual of bath
And put on a suit and tie.
Out the door, I go to work
Feeling happy and very spry.
I will repeat this daily ritual
Until I feel like a well oiled machine,
Then I will be more ready,
If you know what I mean.

The morning fog, laid on the ground
muffling noise, from all around.
With my coat and sweater zipped up tight,
I start my walk, at Dawn's first light.
Walking early, is the best for me
as I can free my mind, readily.
I review my life, as it is now,
thinking about promises in our wedding vow.
Especially intriguing "In sickness and in health."
My love can't be measured in terms of wealth.
I will do what I must do
and keep taking care of you.
