My Little Bulldog

No challenge stops her
    stance is set
       shoulders squared

                                  She needs no reassurance
                                  no protective arm

What she wants
    is what she wills
     she harbors no illusions

                                   No man will tell her
                                   what to do

She has lain out
   her own way
     and swept it clean

                                   No distraction is allowed
                                   to interfere

Her goals are set
   and bannered, waiting
     for distant days

                                     She will claim them all
                                     in triumph, never doubting

Small of stature
   great of heart
     she turns to face the wind

                                      Gentle as a running stream
                                      Unyielding as a diamond

She acknowledges 
   the difficulties
    then passes through

                                        No lie accepted
                                        no truth denied

She scans the road ahead
   weighs its options
     gaze sure and steady

                                         Fears are felt
                                         then disregarded

She does not move back
   she sets her grip upon
     each thing she wants

                                          Her goals must surrender
                                          to her determination

A child in years
   an elder's wisdom
     sits upon her brow

                                          Discouragements will bring no change
                                          a mountain of resolve

Seasons change
   worlds revolve
     she sees it through

                                          The end in sight
                                          stays in sight

Such nobilities
   within my child
     humble me

                                          Her father frets for her
                                          but can never fear

This is my little bulldog
   holding the world 
     by its pantleg

                                            Naught that she needs escapes her
                                            what kind of fool would try

The Breath

From the Breath of God
Descended in human form
A savior named Jesus

Respite

Focused, brows furrowed
Working, toiling, laboring
Then, my child awakes.

Menacing Moms

<                                     just look at my son ...
                                 down to size of thirty two
                                 ....    fencing hackling




                                      meat and potatoes ...
                                   leftovers from my mother
                                 ...  well isn't that special



                                     eat sleep and ... running
                                     thats all I will ever see
                                   ...  glad father isn't here

Lingering Presence

fragrance of the rind
lost reflections left behind ….
life and death entwined

Looking Back

Starting from zero learning to walk like a child... A life without you. unknown path lying each step longs for your guidance... No milestones ahead. let me stumble Dad I will get up on my own... a new beginning. © kash poet (19th June 2011) ==============00===============

First dance


Tightly she holds on

    Little pink feet on Wing Tips

        May I have this dance 
       
             ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~


Music starts to play
   
    White lace, pearls, something blue worn

        Dad come dance with me...
