My Time had come

I have been as free as I have ever felt

Only still longing to find love again in the heart of another

I am faced with Choice in my direction

Taking faith in making the right decisions


The other day I went out to a local Jam session

Where local artist play their instruments in a dance with one and other

The scene being a large red barn built in 1907

where the sound and feel is different

A young guitarist/banjo player walked 10 miles to participate in the jam

His playing style was unique

around 8 musicians were participating

we struck harmonings with our voices and instruments

while playing the classic soul felt tunes


when it was over I gave the young man a beer and asked if he wanted to stick around and continue playing

he was happy to have the invite

We sat with the intention to play more music

Instead we talked

The young man had recently lost his father, and a few years back he lost his mother

We shared stories of joy and pain

we talked about the creation of the universe

We talked about our loved ones never truely leaving us

We talked about finding self and faith


I gave this man a ride to some local apartments

I gave him what little food I had in my truck

I gave him my time and he gave me his


Later when I got home, I looked to the stars 

And prayed for this young man to have the Light help guide him through

This is an interesting piece because it draws the reader in by what it has to say as well as the style in which it is written
Nice one
