The Best of Intentions
by Richard L. Provencher  
7/25/2014 / Relationships

A long walk to the mine
fills him with unease
knowing what
awaits, checking in among the line
of shuffling men tired
from the day before
still coughing up black
that sticks to throats and now
descending into the bowels
of the earth once again --
past special lights embedded
in walls, down and down
until the 2,500 ft level. Grinding
of rock by a crusher brings
ore to the surface
small enough to be smelted
where he will next work
skimming waste from molten
pots of copper where
sulphur gas is hard to breathe
heat to endure --
surviving perils at work
knowing she's home waiting.

Richard enjoys writing, especially poetry. Many poems have been published in Print and Online Journals. He and his wife, Esther are co-authors of Kindle e-books which are now available on They are "born again" Christians and very busy in their church, Abundant Life Victory International.
