Responses to Graham Nunn on Fatherhood Day 2

There will be many tears ahead for you
every sense heightened and alert
you are a Dad now
that pink felt scent
of fresh skin and life
he settles to a waterless world
with weight of heavy limbs
and softly closing lids
of space to stretch hands
and curl
close.
