    here we are sitting on
    the edge of the pier as
    the fog slowly moves
    across the early morn;

    the scent of dew covers
    the silence of the day as
    the sun peeks its way
    past the everchanging day;

    i hear the faint sound of
    water splashing against
    the side of the rowboat
    as it peers out of the fog;

    "are you ready?" speaks
    the voice of confidence as
    the master of the pen pulls
    up to the side of the pier;

    "where we going" i ask
    with a faint voice of curious
    as i enter the boat being
    careful not to lose my balance;

    "don't know" speaks the
    kaster as he hands me an
    oar and moves to the left
    so i can place it in it clamp;

    "We'll see when where get
    there" he smiles as i look
    bewildered about our journey
    in this vessel of security;

    and as we places our oars
    in the water and pull back
    for the first stroke i see the
    sky open up to provide us

    a rainbow...


    bro, i love you as my brother in spirit and in truth. i am blessed to know that your pen rings like mine and our voices speak so evenly. As you seek the destiny God ahs for you, know that I am with you rowing when you rest for we are brother's in poetry and none can change that. I shall see you when you return...

    D

    you will be missed.

    May you return to us
    when the time is right
    when the plan God has
    set for you has been
    complete then and
    only then will you
    return to Destee
    renewed, refreshed
    ready to teach us
    and bless
    your words of wisdom
    have been applied
    you gave me knowledge
    wisdom and understanding
    you have blessed me in ways
    unimaginable for that I am
    greatful
