You see perfection

I know my imperfections

No one is perfect

Insecurity.

The bitter seed of mistrust

flourishes once sown.

Whose sharp roots shatter foundations.

Collapsing the strongest love.

Distractive movement,

caught the corner of my eye.

Irrational thought.

Stop it.  I know you are dead.

Yet still, I thought I saw you.

The woes of my day
Dissolve from my burdened soul
Beneath your warm smile

Folded paper sheet

Crafts child’s plain expectations  

Paper aeroplane

Father’s Day for me

A coffin, long years buried

Three wonderful sons

Rose petals wither

Dandelions crouch in grass

Gathering driftwood
