Adrift


A nearby river in Hartford. Photo taken by daughter.

As I fell into a river

And was soon adrift

My brother pulled me out

He was really very swift

Rescued me from drowning

Gave back my life as a gift

Before I Leave


Don’t want to die alone

Would like my children to be there

In my final hours

Before I leave, and depart elsewhere 

Will they be there? Or not?

It’s a harrowing thought

Or, I will breathe my last

Dying alone

(Sheen-May2017)

Pursue

Holding onto fork I pursue, and chase

Attempting within the space

Can’t catch with all my efforts 

My endeavor is in vain

The last piece of pineapple 

On my plate it’s likely to remain

(Sheen-May2017)
