TELLING WHERE HE WAS GOING

Mike arose early today,

for a meet of A.A….*

To describe

Destination took time,

I needed pointing the right way!

Villages in that town,

Literally surround…

All sorts of names

While the mills have changed—

Some have been knocked down!

He forgot the exact name,

And so we played the game…

Known landmarks

Encompassing arcs,

Not always thinking the same.

Then he “came in” another way,

And light flooded in–HOORAY!

It was good–

His meet in Linwood–

To which he drove away!

THANKS TO A.A.

THANKS TO A.A.

(Alcoholics Anonymous)

So many of my neighbors

Involved in A.A. labors…

Say it’s the key

How they were freed,

From alcoholism’s vapors.

One man passes by

To talk to the minister guy…

Comparing notes

With the cause he devotes

Much of his energetic high!

My friend Mike is a Christian too,

Thankful for what they do…

Visiting

When he broke everything,

Their caring pulled him through!
