Father’s hands

Father’s hands

I walk along the shores of time
Sponge down that scow from wrinkled brow
Till not a battle grow
Blooded scars stain and pine


Callous filled time has brought
 Askew the path of time
Lost forever youthful step
Banish play things all for not

Fog and mist imagined sight
Time has traced a weathered place
Furrowed valley thirst of tenderness
I walk along the shores of time



 thank you and god bless

Hey Cowboy -

Your poem reminds me of how strong I saw my dad's own hands as a little boy. I remember how I thought he was so strong and big when I was a kid. Is this a follow-up to your previous post about your father? Thank you. :)
