– nicholaus –

Nicholaus,

you are on my mind

in this moment.

Many of these glimpses

shamefully come few and far between

these days.

Not that far in

distance and time,

you were placed in my eyes

front and heavy…

just like many were before you

and,

I believe,

many will be after you.

~

Something smooth in your

crooked smile,

a gracious, grey man you are,

sharing your youth with your seeds.

May they grow to inherit

your essence, your edge,

every piece of it,

then spread your name across the earth.

This world deserves to know

the name ‘Nicholaus’ and

what it represents.

You deserve to know your name,

Nicholaus,

and what you represent.

~
