I Have a Coin

I Have a Coin I have a coin I deem a treasure.One side bears the sign of extinction,And the other, an instance of nature.But it’s not a coin; it’s a seal,And the meaning of this distinctionIs the unbearable sadness I feelWith experience, or with closure. It seems like a double exposure,But the knowledge of impermanenceBleeds into the ideal likenessOf mortality in its eminence—To yield a vibrant pictureOf a creature’s essential brightnessAs it burns for life without censure. --Rob NeufeldSee More

Favorites:
"Mountains of the Heart" by Scott Weidensaul. Michael Hardy's studies of the Civil War; the novels of Sir Terry Pratchett.
My next book is "The Ballad of Tom Dooley," set in Wilkes County.
