Father‘s Day 2013
I am a happy dad. Thank you M for your love. And for bearing and birthing our daughters, and supporting my practice of fatherhood. Thank you J and S for agreeing to life with us as your parents in entering this world, and for your love everyday since birth. Family love is everlasting. It reflects the gift of love divine.
Today started with the inspiration of beingness in the serenity of this good life.
Morning window-gate of light
Silver maple -- green-rich, the gold
A soaking and the memory
Of yesterday’s rain
Arbor dancing to a symphony
Of secret strings and cymbal play
Whirligig spins to its place among thousands
For squirrel life now or century-old maple
Decades following my morning.
