Father's Day--1959

Dad hid behind his cigarette,
his golf clubs ready,
his burly arms flexed to tee off,
his day planned for him,
a big dinner
and then his cross-handed grip struck the Top Flight
far down across the creek,
his son proud
watching his dad's power,
wondering if he'd ever hit the ball that far.

The day was short. the thoughts were long.
my pen hand ready.
my creased fingers jerked to move.
my time slipping away.
bright sunny days.
and the moment flew on to the next way along ahead.
no notice or turning of head.
moments and time stepping on.

:) Your Daddy was big and strong like mine. :) A beautiful memory - very well penned -

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
Reviewed by Sandie Angel 6/15/2008
We always remember our dads in a certain way - like something that they do best; or sometimes the things they said. It's a wonder how children can remember everything.

Beautiful write!

Sandie Angel :o)
