Monday Poetry: Introspection

Introspection

 

Every few decades

In silent comfort,

I ask,

Who am I?

The response is like

Gunfire in a canyon.

Birds scatter, dogs howl

And a rescue team

Scrambles for answers

Until the search is called off.

My labels: grandfather, father, veteran, writer, poet, photographer and dreamer in pursuit of the meaning of life. Getting close, although I'm running out of time--probably why I'm so close.
