Two Poems - Patrick Lowry

This is Patrick's first submission to the Fire Bowl.  Patrick writes poetry and essays, can be seen about town on his trusty bicycle and loves to reminisce about his time as a surfer in the 60's and his awesome childhood in Morocco.  Welcome, Patrick!


Joy doesn't count it's hours out loud
Or brag about it's girth
It claims neither color or weight
Joy is not proud
Yet it can make whole the broken
And break the door of Hell

My #1 Buddy in the 4th Grade

You might not even notice him at first
He's kind of quiet
And not very tall
On the shy side
He'll never make the team
Or be cool
But he can fix broken stuff
And he knows the way home
