15 Sunday Pleasure

April Photo A Day Prompt: 15 Sunday Pleasure

Prompt: Terza rima
Reference: None

 

In honor of my father, Herminio.
Posted April 25, 2014:
Maligayang kaarawan, Dad! 

 

My poor sweet girl.
Blessed with a mother
Who takes you for a whirl.

Who takes you hither
and neither, and chases
dreams none the sweeter

than pancakes, and faces
painted glitter, and faires
bedecked with laces.

Well. I have marked our cares,
one for each speculation.
Inventoried our wares,

plotted our destination.
No more omens or schemes.
No more pointing out constellations.

Just waymarks on maps. Moonbeams.
