Father's Voice
 
"No need to get home early;
the car can see in the dark."
He wanted me to be rich
the only way we could,
easy with what we had.
 
And always that was his gift,
given for me ever since,
easy gift, a wind
that keeps on blowing for flowers
or birds wherever I look.
 
World, I am your slow guest,
one of the common things
that move in the sun and have
close, reliable friends
in the earth, in the air, in the rock.
 
William Stafford

  1. I love the mix of eastern and Mexican in your altar. Very cool.
    This is a nice poem for your father, in particular I like the last verse.
