Phillip Coffey: Fathers Day - Outreaching

By Phillip Coffey
Sweet potato vines overnight you have been long extended
Among the nights’ secretive, breeze-guided emotions
Have you been outreaching - hidden beauty not seen
By we God-fearing creatures - not yet fully completed?

Is it true, eyes have not seen or ears yet heard
What is in store for each of us that truly believe?
Released from our mortal bodies to the chosen blessed
Transported to the others held - that have long been missed
