A Poem by JD DeHart: "Amplified"

October 26, 2017






Hello, Father.  Quick

Does a loss amplify
the sounds of life, bring
all emotions into greater
magnitude - sharpen
breath and beat?

Or does loss deaden,
wrap the mind in cocoon,
weigh down words,
muffled gestures, drop
all limp into the earth?

I suppose the lesson
is trust, the book would
be Ecclesiastes or Job,
and the only way through
is your hand guiding me.
