Reflections for and about Zac ... who has leapt over some of life's highest hurdles.

For Zac, My Younger Son and Youngest Child

“May He Become … ”


A father’s son he prays be (come)

a person …

if, when and where there may be none.


I see him then, but now he is,

No longer a boy …

but in process, a man ...

may he become.


Orange lilies along the way

I scolded him, once long ago ...

his freckled face crestfallen.

Boyishly had plucked the flowers from their stems.

We laugh now at that memory, but its lesson

he retains …

respect life, son, its beauty.

Now at twenty, his becoming is but another beginning.

Return now and again to the ‘abc(s)’

A good man lives with and accepts responsibility.

Befriend them who have few if any.

Respect a woman for she is another man’s daughter, as your sister is mine.

Learn from every teacher, especially those you may dislike.
