Trilogy of Poetry for Father's Day

(Talk of the Town photos provided) Above, Susie Sexton with her husband, Don, and son, Roy. Below, a father and son moment most appropriate for Father's Day.

By Susie Duncan Sexton

"Soap and education are not as sudden as a massacre but they are more deadly in the long run."                                (--Mark Twain)


"Parenting" qualifies as a word to dislike--

Artificial, "all aboard", domineering clap-trap!

Accidental, "out-of-the-nowhere" little tike?

Aye!  Free entrance "into-here" toward growth with no map.


Momentary Links--Between Generations

"...Record that (we) are born."

You be you--I'll be me.

Birthrights of joy, not scorn,

We both arrived to "BE".


"Send 3-5 poems."   Three's Enough
