“7649 Linton Road”

by Angela St.Clair

Beauty beckons
the dirt road
lost in towering trees
Cobwebs and dust decorate
displaying the intricate art
of the mansion from a dream
Birds talk. Leaves whistle.
Wasps warn.
as the music distracts
Musty dampness lingers
while the day’s sweat ignites comfort
PEACE befalls
the anxiety-laden longing
Why
How
What If
only sadness knows
but JOY conquers

As a devoted wife, mom, grandma, teacher, and aspiring writer, I try to live each day with an attitude of gratitude. Currently, I am an English and journalism teacher at Mater Dei High School and serve as the school's Communications Director. My ultimate goal is to become stronger spiritually, mentally, and physically each day so that I can do what I am called to do.
