Why do you weep my child
what brings you anguish
What eclipses the spark of light
that guides your inner being
Aspire my dear one
to accept what can't be seen
I'll give you hope
to still your anxiety
I'll give you serenity
to end your restlessness
I'll give you...Read More

Your intentions 
Were good 
It’s just that you misunderstood 
The technology 
You issue your child 
A digital leash 
An electronic guardian, babysitter, and spy 
We show them the door and provide the key 
And allow them to see the world...Read More

Your DNA
If your children — those losers — are moving back home
even though they were told to explore and to roam,
treat the deadbeats with tact
and remember a fact —
it was YOUR DNA inside YOUR chromosome.

I Will Always Love You: Lovely words from a loving Mother

Burn
Burn....

Burn Mother, burn
staring at the flames
burning higher and higher
the crackling sounds
the awful smells
I watch with disgust
as you burn
your life was colourful
shameful, hurtful
yet your beauty is all
in every corner of this
human tank of black
ashes to ashes
they say you go
whence you came
smouldering...Read More

and you kiss my tear

SINGING TANDEM
Projecting himself as concert prince
My special child, full of confidence
Serenades by his tunes’ preference
Enthralling my heart he does convince.

Using his left hand in mic*’s absence
He belts out with gracious persistence
Then prodding me by his insistence
I join him for a duet...Read More

Bereft of romantic passion,
yet verily full of love’s expression…
…My special son’s kiss is blessed delightful bliss
Warming my heart with exuberance I don’t want to miss.

Assuring him God's ever constant presence vibrantly

To a Son
I think my job is really done,

in raising you, my bearded son?
So that you beat it hence?

The anguish, pain and rocky nights!
And now — a vacant nest?
I close the door, switch off the lights

Kindness
If I could only teach my child one thing,
it would be this – just be kind.

will my words hurt or wound?

from words stabbing, causing pain.
Too many thoughtless actions etch...Read More

I hear them,

When I pick up my child, 
and hold her close, 
her breath…
Harps; lovely,
faraway, 
and distant.

and clean her kitchen, 
all afternoon,

Father at a loss to express care and concern for Punim
Helplessness immobilizes yours truly,
I genuinely agitate
permanently lasting indelible impact deux
biological offspring unfairly bore brunt,
compliantly, complicity, and complimentary
I avidly, doggedly, instinctively helped create

subsequently, unintentionally, or willingly
unpleasantly affected as adults facilitate
learned behaviors to navigate
their respective independent lives
both managed to coordinate
transitioning as responsible...Read More

The little kid changed my life
though lived half the age

hands outstretched, demanding care
the closed little fists
tickling laughter
