Thoughts of my Father ~ June 17, 2012


It didn't matter if we were
Paddling after ducks in Lake Shasta or 
Engineering runoff into fanciful creeks
Setting up camp with Mom every summer or
Building wooden boats for the pool
~
Digging in the garden or
Turning my VW bus into a camper
when I was in college 
  
I always was Daddy's Girl

November 1945

He was my hero
And at times my counterpoint
A quiet man
With a big heart
Happy Father's Day Daddy
Thanks for watching over me
Then and now
