The Manic Minstrel

Hook In Mouth

In the magic glow
and muddy heat of summer days,
shrouded by myth
– we were ghosts passing through
the mist and the haze;

and those that were blind
will finally taste and see
…..that the Lord is good!!!”


I had this really weird idea for these sketches, but wasn’t really sure what I would do with them. The poem came about from a random discussion with my Brother about winter. For many, winter is a harsh unpleasant season. As in nature, we can go through different seasons…
