Sometimes friends show up in unexpected places and cause us to ponder and think hard and maybe laugh even harder. And then they are gone. And even if we have never seen one another face to face, we are saddened by the loss.
Here’s a verse in tribute of just such a friend. I am praying comfort and peace over the family of Galen, the G-man and self-titled Mr. Know-It-All. And thank for the Flash-55 reading and writing fun over the years.
Although we never met, I cried.
His unexpected point-of-view
Stirred me to look at life askew.
He prompted us to laugh and write
In 55-word form delight.
A storyteller to amuse
With constant quips and quirky views,
Sir Galen, ride in full array.
We’ll miss you, as you ride away.
