Twist – Brushed with Mystery

Chimney Safety Checklist - Old House Journal Magazine

For Glen

What was the voice that called you that day?

The innocent child,

Ready to explore the’ what if’ and the ‘can I?’

Or was it a darker voice,

Fallen prey to whim;


For centuries,

Seeking companionship

Calling from a lonely  chamber?

Or was it a deeper voice of the Eternal Current

Knowing that deprivation

Would either

Kill you

Or open you up?

Lean in to the fear


And twist;

Second birth.

They never noticed you were gone.

The hours away

For all they knew were

In play.

Only you knew

How close you came,

And the mark it left.
