+ Fav Poet


The woods stole me today and I was grateful that molting maples hummed their familiar hymns, brilliant notes of crimson and lingering gold. Dad, you walked beside me, chatting, invisible, so I became five, fed nuts to nattering squirrels as your big hand tugged at a cherished season. Once, I’d thought you mapped the flights of geese, scattered turbulent clouds in some grand scheme. Again, your voice traveled as we walked the path, windblown, while my footsteps crushed old dreams.

    This write goes straight to the heart, Cyndi! Truly incredible and poignant! The tenth anniversary of my dad's passing was this past June. Not a day goes by that I don't miss him and wish he was here to be a grandpa to Dylan. He would have been an amazing grandpa. Memories, like your poem, bring smiles and tears...hugs, Rhonda Soupmail...
