nicely written poem about Father's Day. Sorry to hear about your dad and his memory loss at this time. Always keep those memories of your Father's close to your heart.
This is a great Father's Day poem you have written. I encountered no distractions. I found no technical problems. my favorite part of your poem is...
I hand him a rough, weathered totem
and ask, "Can you show me how the water moves?'.
Slowly, cautiously he moves the talisman:
Up, down, circles, spirals,
a figure eight for eternity
For this Sunday
driftwood and whale song
is the medicine we need.
