Lazarus Walk

in the closet;
I wait for them to walk
so I can follow.

in my drawer;
he needs his license, money,
not a lot, 

pair of pants,
running shoes,
his watch,

field guide, 
floppy hat.
I won’t forget.

I’m ready, boots;
lead me;
it’s not too late;
it’s not.

    Kathy This poem holds so much ever hope in it...and so in your Boots I trust :) May our boots always lead us well. GREAT hope giving write. How the soul needs to have little whispers of "it is not too late" no matter how illogical hope sometimes seems Love to you Ingrid

    Kathryn,, Stopping by to greet you and every other soup poet, with a special thank you comment, during this wonderful Thanksgiving season. Hope you do not mind the time I am taking to express my sincere appreciation for any support you have offered during the years, or time you have been here on the soup. I am deeply thankful and extend to you my best wishes for a happy and healthy Poetic Magical Thanksgiving Day. *Always & Forever, the Poet Destroyer; -*
