Response to Graham Nunn on Fatherhood Day 10

It will be the music

the rhythm and the rhyme

the tempo and the time

it takes to talk across dark rooms

with wanting, wilful eyes.

 

It will be the strength

at the centre

of every silence you’ find

in quiet places, always

alone, but never lonely.

 

It will be the singing, blue sky

and its bold metaphors

of marigold-magic days

the drama of night’s curtain

jet shot silk, slit with diamonds.

  1. What a great idea Maggie, responding to Graham’s first 30 day poems. Love this one in particular.
