Louis Gibbs

A strange one

Was he.


From his eyes

Poured a captivating

Blend of kindness and sorrow

Along with an abundance

Of great wisdom.




One knew

Instinctively this

Was a man who is

Not to be trifled with,

As soon realized by

Money changers

In the temple.



He was one


I miss him terribly.

        A fine write Louis. Yet we know it didn't end with His death - as some films portray Him. Doh! They've missed out the 'ending'.

        • Louis Gibbs

          Right ... death is just another beginning, isn't it. Thanks, 'O'!
