Number Man (poem by me)

His life is defined by the…
…salary he will earn,
…bills he must collect,
…yield on his stock,
…minimum he will accept,
…debt owed to him,
…deduction he can get,
…sale priced just right,
…count of his assets.

Remember, Number Man, to kiss
your children good night.
Remember, Number Man, the Lord
has numbered your days.

“So teach us to number our days that we may get a heart of wisdom.”—Psalm 90:12

Love Can Last (poem by me)

A marriage
is an old covered bridge
two people embark on together

taking shelter with promises of forever
but darkness ensues and threatens their endeavor
will creaky planks give way and collapse?

in time the darkness will pass
love can last.

There are three things that are too amazing for me, four that I do not understand: the way of an eagle in the sky, the way of a snake on a rock, the way of a ship on the high seas, and the way of a man with a maiden.—Proverbs 30:18-19
