in 1978 Owen with John


This AM

my daughter went to the farm store

and left her phone in the Ghent Homestead.

I tried for an hour and with 6 calls to 5 people to find her

all to no avail.

I was lost in cyberspace

and had to turn to prayer.



no touch screen –

and I’m out of touch

with the whole village.


Even the wind

was silent.

Only my soul sang.


(from now on, I’m holding all of them in my lap)

( we are there in the lap of my creator)
