born to succeed

Be that whispering voice

Heard only in the heart

Of someone as they start

The new journey

Of being a parent

Something they’ve never done

Have a daughter or son

They may be scared

Remind them they have strength

To get through every day

For love will light the way

On this new road

Ronovan Writes Weekly Haiku Poetry Prompt Challenge #207 Child & Safe

Kids say it’s unfair

Parents try to keep them safe

Buckle that seat belt

sticks and cones


Hear it down the block

An adult sized music box

Ice cream in motion

The truck makes it rounds

Every other house, there’s kids

Anxious for their treats

Sons of Father’s Day


 A legacy of love, handed down from father to son, to father and son, that is what this photo means to me. I took this in my home in early 1987 when my brother presented our father with his very first grandchild, a son!  Happy Father’s Day to my dad, my brother and all the men out there who are DADS!

These men among men

Yes, they were children once too

Forever bonded

Truths and fears suppressed

No instruction manual

Instinct takes over

Years of stops and starts

Hopes that they are forgiven

Love will grant them grace
