I speak to
in those moments
I feel your closeness
within the sound
of the wind through
your gentle quiet ways,
comfortable with silence;
your words of wisdom,
your ever present smile,
my own given in return;
your calm ice blue eyes,
that always saw my soul.
I was like an island,
surrounded by an
of love you held
in your heart
*Note: I was lucky to have this gentle man as my father.
This is a photo of my Dad at the age of 21 shortly after my parents were married. My Dad is looking directly into the lens he always did that. He looked people straight in the eye never looking away. As I got older I noticed it made people uncomfortable, sometimes they’d look away. I remember asking my Dad why that was. His response was two fold, either their lying or hiding something deeper they don’t want you to see.
On a side note: I have a photo of my Mother age 17 in the same setting, apparently taken the same day. however she is actually reading (she loved books) the book.
Wishing my fellow bloggers a Happy Fathers Day to the men who choose to be a Dad, Step Dad, Adopt, or Mentor a child, remember be kind, understanding you are molding who they’ll become.
Always 🌎 ✌🏻 💙 Take care, be safe.

*Note: I’ve always been eclectic in my musical tastes. I was never a mad fan of anyone band or artist, although I did have favorites. I’ve given some links to a few of the original vinyl albums I have. I’ve been dragging these around for years. If you ever had a collection of these you know how heavy they are. I hope you enjoy them.
PS My posts will be limited as I broke a finger and it takes forever to peck with one finger.

Eugi’s Weekly Prompt “Cherish” – May 18, 2020
flesh nor blood were yours~
arms encircled like a womb~
your love carried me~
delivered me to this world~
life’s joys I might not have known
*Note: My Mom had so much love to give and couldn’t have children. She always said how lucky she was to be chosen to be my Mom and her prayers were answered. When all the time I was the lucky one that He sent her to me. My Mom loved roses and had a garden full of them. This year my daughter honored both of us by planting two identical rose bushes in her own garden (you can see it’s bloom in Eye View #3), I was deeply moved by this gift of remembrance and love.
music sets the pace~
body free to choose it’s moves~
