The Way

written by: Leanne Howard Kenney

@neeneebucket

 

everything, you are not meant to see
but a path clearly, in actuality
to insure you keep injury free
Along which you are walking so carefully

your halos rise from a porch light
producing such an ambient light
stay glory white, stay straight
If they but follow those known as a prelate

not an emptiness but a void
their halos disappeared and destroyed
wander off in the darkness thee
Serve two masters, it cannot be

Elohim, if the desire is to return unto thee
there cannot be any wannabes, any hyperbole
the lighthouse, keep searching for its beacon
Never, never will the keeper let in weaken

the light kept alive and in sight,
like a child's porch light,
as a living alder
There you always find safe harbor

My name is Leanne Howard Kenney.
I am a former speechwriter and press secretary for former San Diego City Councilmember current San Diego County Supervisor, Ron Roberts.
I am a former Sportswriter. A former political writer. A former public relations copy writer. A former newspaper reporter. A former . . .
Apparently, I am a former writer.
Well, that is not quite true.
I have been writing poetry on my own for quite a while. And, I have been writing the odd article here and there for my own and my friends' pleasure for years.
I started posting my poetry approximately a year ago. Where they came from, I know not.
I am just glad they came.
I hope you enjoy what I have to say.
