Super Saturday - Super Dad

For dVerse Poetics, where we are exploring beauty:

Beauty is…..
Words on the page
That turn me misty-eyed;
Quiet family nights
Under calm starry skies.
That full million-watt smile
on the brink of a laugh;
Those tears shimmering while
you are at the end of something tough.
Little goslings with mom and dad;
Song lyrics that make you sad;
That simple home-cooked meal we ate;
The flower that forgot and bloomed a bit late.
Beauty is …

 



For Quote It Saturday:
"There's something like a line of gold thread running through a man's words when he talks to his daughter, and gradually over the years it gets to be long enough for you to pick up in your hands and weave into a cloth that feels like love itself." - John Gregory Brown
