One day we were riding in the car
Talking about his work
He speaks so deeply about everything
Has a philosophical point of view.
Talks to me like an adult
As if I understand
The amount of wood needed to construct a frame
And how business works.
Nonetheless, I listen
And do so very intently
For I love to hear the sound of his words that are not only
Soft and gentle and beautiful
But have lessons hidden beneath them.
