Ferry Ride


By Joseph F. Steele

So —
There’s this girl, right?
I took her hand
I carried her bags
I smiled inside her eyes
She heard me.
And listened … and she laughed!
In an instant, right?
We were where we wanted
To be …
In an instant.

Joseph F. Steele was a dear friend of Kristen Norman, as he was to many others. He left this earth too soon. Many of his poems remain, which he referred to only as “thoughts & words.”
