Summer Solstice and Father’s Day

June 21, 2015

Summer Solstice and Father’s Day
two reasons to celebrate.
To Dads everywhere, blood-related or not,
your role’s important, make it top rate.

You’re observed, appreciated, admired
by young people in your life,
some of you doing it on your own,
others with support of your wife.

What you say and what you do,
how you react to what’s going on
is how children perceive you—
what they’ll remember when they move on.

Being gentle, kind and affectionate
are qualities you can share.
Being approachable is key,
letting them know you’ll always be there.

Make time to give a compliment
for all small tasks they achieve,
don’t let goals won go unnoticed,
let them know that, in them, you believe.

Use your inner wisdom as guidance.
Be ready to offer support
through all their perceived challenges
in academia, friendships and sport.

They need to feel loved and protected
and that home is a good place to be.
Tell them you love them often
and you’ll get love reciprocally.

Happy Father’s Day, enjoy your summer.

LOVE AND FORGIVENESS

In tricky situations,
conflicts large and small,
if you come from a sense of love
it will overpower it all.

Everyone needs to feel loved
no matter what they do,
what lessons they are learning
or misleads they’re following through.

If we can light a spark of love
through a smile of recognition,
a hug, a handshake, a cheery “Hello”,
that love will grow to fruition.

Forgiveness plays a major role.
Forgive yourself first for your part,
then forgive the others involved,
sincerely, straight from your heart.

It’s important, then, to let it go.
You’ve done all you can do.
Don’t relive it in idle chatter.
Move on – as a more loving you.

Writing prompt for Day 20 of Writer’s Digest Poem a Day,
“use the title “My… the…”

MY GRANDSON THE GYMNAST

Twice a week for 4 ½ hours
my grandson works out at the gym.
He’s very strong and powerful—
a muscular body on him.

He can walk on his hands towards a door
and open it with his feet,
then continue to hand-walk through it.
No wonder he can compete.

In gymnastic competitions
boys do pummel, vault, rings,
high and parallel bars
and a floor routine with aerobic things.

He’s completed his fifth competition
and won one silver and four gold.
All his hard work is paying off
and he’s only nine years old.

That’s level one completed,
next year it may be level three.
His coach may boost him up a level
as they works toward more victory.
