A Child of Hope

Tap-tapping from a white
cane resonates like the beat
of a cautious drum

leading a pale-faced
boy through aisles of produce

fingers poking as a hummingbird
at various shelves
absorbs the
crinkle of a spaghetti package
chin uplifted immersed in
unfamiliar sounds.

Mom's rainbow smile says
it all proud of her son
turned ten today and 'born again'
during last Sunday's service.

Richard L. Provencher 2008

Richard enjoys writing poems; many of which have been published in Print and Online. He and his wife, Esther are also co-authors of stories and a print novel. They are "born again" Christians and very busy in their church, Abundant Life Victory International, in Bible Hill, Nova Scotia.
