On Death


In an instant

I faded away …

I looked to my right

And then

I took off, like an Eagle

I flew —

And I couldn’t stop

It wouldn’t let me go


I wasn’t finished yet …

— By Joseph F. Steele

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.”
