When Dads come in handy.


Sentinel firs stained by the fumes of urban exhaust

await torrential rain to bathe each herringbone pine

and disturb the secretive bull finch from its enveloping cover.

Stone walls crafted by skill and care ride the contours of hills

herding aimless sheep, accomodating minature fauna

hiding them from the keen eyed hawk.

Bobbing heads of trotting riders shake equine bones beneath

saddle, reins of leather, metal bit between the teeth.

Such are the sights of the hour in which a father sits,

aware of the fading car battery as love songs enter his thoughts.

This is the hour each week  father brings his daughter to riding lessons.

A weekly hommage of tranquility in all seasons

To see the age old harmony of rider and horse

where a gentle kind of love is shared.
