A Father’s Delight

21 Jun

 All the  kids

Children scamper

Wild, yet not hurried

Like a rose blooms;

Patiently above the ground.

 Jesse Boy10

Their life packaged in wonder,

Discover, what never was buried

Beneath the sun or the light of the moon;

Excited each time something is found.

Nothing is forgotten in their pockets,

Understanding nothing is left behind.

    I think I forgot a word? What I meant to say, is how much we could learn if we could follow them around.

    How nice to honor your children on Father’s Day. I enjoyed the portraits. So lovely, as are your words. Hope you had a happy day yesterday (and all days).

    I love the poem and love the photos even more. I like the portraiture, solemn rather than smiles. One sees who each child is in these photos. Very wonderful to have raised such a brood, ZQ!
