Donal Mahoney- A Poem


Seeing is believing
smart people
often tell me but

no one ever told me
believing is seeing
except this blind lady

I help across the street
who taps her cane
and tells me 

you’ll find out
when you leave Earth 
and whirl among the planets

and soar behind
the sun and moon
on the way to your place 

believing is seeing 
someone some say 
isn't there.

Donal Mahoney lives in St. Louis, Missouri.
