If Life Were Half

A Poem

By D.C. Buschmann


If Life Were Half

what you imagine


        ride eagles’ wings                               

see the firmament     part


        hear angelic messages

heralded        to grounded


                      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
