A Poem, Prodigal Son

This is an abbreviated narrative poem I put together a while ago. It focuses on the return of a prodigal son, and I use that term loosely. I may change its title to “The Son Has Returned.” –Please feel free to share your thoughts on this. Anyway, it is more of a modern take onContinue reading “A Poem, Prodigal Son”

A Poem, Cast No Shadow

I put this poem together a few months ago. This chronicles a person struggling with his sanity, but we soon learn why at the end of the poem.
