After the Call


                                          ... after the call ... I rise / fry two eggs ... his way / over easy

                  ... sip my coffee / hum his favorite hymn

                                                                             ... taste the dark earth turning

  6. Why do I find this poem so haunting? Am I reading more into it? A good poem should raise emotions. This one surely does.

    1. No, you aren't reading more into it ... you got it ... I left it quite vague, but that's the nature of life ... in all its phases ... Thank you, Steven.
