Daughter

A poem

Photo by guille pozzi on Unsplash

Daughter, seek wisdom above all
Don’t repeat the mistakes of my youth
Yet you are more self-possessed
Than I ever was, will be
You’re cool, a bright young thing
Popular, a blessed child

Not awkward like I was
Shy with nothing to say
Although I could have shouted
From the roofs my manifesto
You are blessed with grace
Talented dancer, athlete
Beautiful to all, my little girl

Sailing

A poem

Photo by giuseppe Peppe on Unsplash

The sailing club billows forth
Tacking across the harbour
Circling the islands
Visiting each bay
A pleasant view to watch
On a May afternoon

Dotting the water
Gliding the waves
Soundless but for the wind
And crash of waves

The shouting of instructions
Watch the boom
