If Life Were Half

A Poem

By D.C. Buschmann

 

If Life Were Half

what you imagine

I’d

        ride eagles’ wings                               

see the firmament     part

          

        hear angelic messages

heralded        to grounded

        mortals    

                      who salt the earth

        observe the righteous

protect the young    from fangs

          of wolves

                      cloaked in deceit

        find peace in

crests     troughs

        the unknown     the evolving

If life were half

what you imagine

I’d

        know
