searching for grandfather

searching for grandfather poem by steven james humphreys

hiding in contours

of the dusty unread book.

lonesome termites run

through his thoughts

eating through pages he’d read

like countless hungry worms.

printed ink transformed

his mindful thinking

a painted illusion

of a lantern held

in a small boat drifting

in the center of a lake…

the unborn girl

in search

of grandpa.
