    The craft of the carpenter melds along with the craft of you as a writer.....and the love incorporated into this poem is magical and sanded down to be as smooth as velvet. What a lovely poem...... the men in my family are loving fathers (grandfathers) uncles, and examples too....and are also good with a hammer, nail and sandpaper. I think there may be a link? I love this speaks to me!

    Wow...your comment is touching. You have a lot of good men around you taking care of their rings!.. I did some construction when O was younger, but I learned the Sun is unforgiving. Thanks for the kind words!

    I just read your recent comment. I didn't know there was a "sand" contest. "Sandpaper" just popped into my head while writing yesterday, which is kinda weird now that I am reading a bunch of poems with sandpaper as part of the theme. Hey, you took a unique angle for the contest. You approached a topic that someone could turn into a very stale poem, and you created a lively, meaningful piece. The ending is so cool .... I think if we attempt to define it, we belittle it and ourselves.

    Thanks... Your last sentence is exactly what I was thinking. I really can't explain how my world light up for those 2 little girls. With my children, I would've laid my life on the line for their wellbeing. With the grands, I'm inspired live and continuously love!

    I may have to take mine out of the contest after reading this one. But I was only trying to deliver an important message this time around only to those who receive. If its not about sex, evil, and etc its ignored. Anyway, this is here is real fam. I like how you take your personal experience and share it amongst the world.

    You can't take it's a burner... It's been a beautiful re-linking of the chain, for me, which was severed. I enjoyed my duties as a Father, Provider, Protector, and Teacher! Thanks fam!

    Marlon what a great write and unique approach to the contest. Gotta say when you look back on it, the sandpaper had an important role to play and love remained. All the best for the contest with this gem ;)
