Writer Highlight Featuring: Riley James Neault

Portrait of an old man looking through magnifying glass

Magnified magnificence

A deeper look inside
and it begins
a story told of thick and thins
a use for two
but different skins
thin enough to let love in
but thickness which
it blocks, and dims
explosions of emotions
life is roller coasting
cross legged, yoga posing
confidently keep from boasting
relaxed in balance
that’s controlling
know when to race
or live it slowly
a night that ends
a day begins
from dark to bright as morning
