My Father’s Poem

 5569462293 3e143d7f7a My Fathers Poem

 I gave my Father post-it notes.

 He was enchanted.

 He wrote  ” gone to store”,  or whole letters on bright orange.

       ” There was a male RoseBreasted Grosbeak

           at one of my window feeders this morning.

           I have only seen two hummingbirds so far.

           The Orioles are back.

            I long to hear the Whippoorwills  

                                  Love   Dad “

 His search ended,  mine begins.

 His yearning over, mine neverending.

 I long to hear the Whippoorwills

 ( my heart’s peace ).
