The Debut of Frank Adams


I don’t know silence –

though I know quiet

and in quiet

the sound of the universe

finds my ears –

a humming sound high pitched

and constant.

I think it is  the voice

of God sending out an SOS –

I am here. I am here. ________________________________________________________________________

The Calling

There are people who know what they want to do –

planning out their lives from childhood.

I spent years waiting for something to

happen- for my big break –

to be lead to where I belonged.

But, no call came and as I waited

life happened and was suddenly over.
