|WINNER of the FREE POETRY CONTEST|
by Lori V
Feeling pulled at every seam
Trying to meet so many needs
Giving; guilty; tired; striving
Barely feel like I'm surviving
Get up early, stay up late
Don't forget important dates
Shallow breath, sighing deep
Bite your tongue, restless sleep
Hurry up, faster pace
Paint a smile on your face
Shaky legs; weakened knees
Guessing what they want from me
A time machine or magic door
Grasping for what was before
Stillness; quiet; easy days
A wrecking ball; then harder ways
Looking for an exit lane
Driving fast to ease the pain
Busy city; urban blight
Traffic backup; canceled flight
Around a curve, see a sign
Merge ahead, a road design
A Choice; a turn; the Shepherd's lane
Melding in, releasing pain
Side trip on a scenic view
Clearer eyes see something new
Stopping at an overlook
Bigger picture; shepherds crook
Seeing now with shepherds eyes
Going home, traveling wise
Breathing deep; stronger; steady
Shepherds hand; feeling ready
Tires on a rocky road
Being cautious, going slow
Listening; looking; feeling sane
Staying in the shepherds lane.

George, Giraffes and My Real Home
His name was George Nishida, but we called him “Dr. George.” He was tall, rail-thin, with wire-rim glasses and an impish, mischievous grin. I wound up in Dr. George’s Marriage and the Family class as a college sophomore. It was a fluke, the result of a closed class and a major rescrambling of my schedule at the last minute. Dr. George wasn’t a fluke. He was all about Being Real. I didn’t quite know what that meant as a college sophomore, but the more I heard, the more I liked it.
“Take out a clean sheet of paper” Dr. George said the first day of class. Oh no. We just got here and he’s already handing out a pop quiz? “Put my name in the upper right hand corner. Here’s my home phone number.” Dr. George provided the necessary digits. “If you ever get into any trouble, if you need help or someone to listen or you don’t know who else to call, call me. Any time, day or night.”
Pencils stopped scratching, heads bobbed up in disbelief. “I’m serious" Dr. George added. "Two o’clock in the morning? Don’t worry about it. The phone is on the night stand by my side of the bed. My wife understands. If you ever find yourself in a situation where you need a friend, call me.”
He meant it.
