forty four years – January 10



forty four years, vows taken.

Peter’s line through hands

lain on. voices, eyes, empty

moments, opened then to

what will come.


fortyfouryears run together

as if a path lain out like string,

winding, straggling, stumbling

forward to ends and days not

yet full known.


fortyfour and more to come

of Peter’s hands and words

of wisdom. bravery more than

wisdom gathered, burnt

of hollowness and filled.
