A shinny light shone on the horizon
a lofty height further from the forensic
from the loins of wisdom...
wisdom from his loins..begetting mega-wisdom (s)
my "paddy"...my "caddy"
my confidant..my confidence
the penchant...the fence
my inclination...my adoration
my guide...my guard
man with seven lives,
mum in heaven smiles,
“his fertile effervescent mind”
his fatherly ever - present bind
the simplicity of his complexity
the intricacy of his sagacity
sub - urban rugged.
easily understandable teacher
the earthen raged
you damned the bellows
tactically concealing the hidden page
you squeezed in to the hollow
glad you didn't listen
look at what we would be missing
we might have taken the long way
you always knew we'll get there someday
...Daddy, age with grace!
