Ron Riekki- Three Poems

Bio: Ron Riekki's books include Here, U.P., and The Way North.

            I’m Afraid of People

so imagine
my fear
of God.

            God, Poem

I wish I could do this life differently.
I’d have become a priest,
a moonlight priest,
a nobody priest,
a skinny priest,
with an army of prayers,
pipes filled with prayers,
prayers beneath prayers.

            It’s Too Late

It’s too late—
she’s gone,

but He’s
always here.

  1. The Lord is always with us. When others leave, we
    still have his light to lead the way.
