Kenia, in her Wednesday Challenge for Imaginary Garden with Real Toads, http://withrealtoads.blogspot.com/2011/11/kenias-wednesday-challenge_30.html, challenges us to write a metaphysical poem from one of the metaphysical questions linked in her posting. I chose question #48: Do humans involve immaterial souls?
by Mike Patrick
Do humans involve immaterial souls?
You do. You still speak to me.
You still touch my cheek after I shave.
I hear you inhale,
smelling my aftershave.
Some things haven’t changed.
I almost see you in the mirror
or picking up the mail.
You are almost here
all the time.
Sometimes I feel your kiss.
It still surprises me while I’m reading.
It’s lighter than it used to be,
but it is.
You still sing along with the radio
when I go to talk to you.
There is laughter in your voice.
I know you’re happy
where we’ll be happy—in time.
