Life

He first asked as a nine year old after questioning the colour if the sky. He expected straight answers but his questions rebounded – snowballing in confusion.

Frustrated, he explored answers at eighteen. Relationships, challenges, study, finances, faith and employment blended with homelessness and incarceration.

Finally resting, the meaning of life is right under his nose.

Waking

SilentLoungeFrom absolute warmth to toe chilling tiles, I rise.

The remote remains untouched; I beat the children out of bed and birds from their nests.
