any picture comes to my mind,
i try to give it a body of words,
love to sit on other blooms,
for honey, color, fragrance........
Yes a day like that many of us remember that silence...
One gets overly protected when dad's around. And somehow one gets only part of his time and he's gone! Nicely Sumana!Hank
Yes, Sumana, fathers are very protective. Very nicely written.
I am not surprised you miss your dad, and also his voice. The voice of our fathers often speak of protection and love.
It would have been my dad's birthday yesterday. Very touching.
I know what you mean Sumana ~ My father wants us to visit him but we can't oblige as my folks are halfway in the other side ~ Very apt for today ~
On this day I too miss my father. I think we think about the time we had with our fathers as well as the opportunities we missed. A poignant poem, Sumana.
Lovely poem -- how different obligations feel in retrospect. Also works well with the form. K.
oy we have to see them when we can...because we are not promised tomorrow....and ugh...its hard....we have to listen and know....you know...its hard...
Luv this please remember my Sunday mere is on, so you can add your link when you visitMuch love...
Ah, I can feel how you miss him. Very poignantly written.
It's hard that when you want to meet but unable to go..nice suman..
hugs... it is tough and i can understand you miss him esp. on a day like today..
Thanks for Linking in at the Sunday Savvy mememuch love...
happy fathers day!! its touching beautiful...
Very sweet Sumana ... sounds like he was a loving dad. A touching tribute on a special day :)
Hobbled and feeling powerless to say "I have something I must do," has been a major regret in my life too. There isn't much I would wish to do differently, but putting those I love before work and career is one.
this is just sweet and short...a memory of a loving father. very nice Sumana. I love your sincerity.
heartfelt - how much you miss him -I understand completely - K
I hope the reunion would be soon & favorably long enough to cherish your time together. Happy Father's day to your Dad! Smiles.
A very nice tribute to a special person.
It is a sad truth that once we have left our family homes and given our lives over to obligations, the number of times we see our parents decreases to perhaps once a year.. then you may count the years as an indication of how many more chances you will have to spend time with them. Often we only realize this too late.Thank you for participating in the Sunday Form Challenge. Your octave works very well in expressing your love of Father.
What a lovely and poignant tribute to your dad. I am always so thankful that I had a chance to spend all my years till he died with him. Hugs.
A fine tribute to your father. I think we all have regrets of things not done or said...Anna
Wonderful tribute, Sumana. I am sure you were looking forward to those two times. At first I was afraid he was delivering bad news to you but it turned out very nice. My Dad too is silent, he died in 2007 at age 97...
sad yet fine ~
Lost in the womb of time...such somber feel to this...my heart goes out to you.
Thank you for stopping by and sharing your valuable thoughts.........
