Fatherhood

Fatherhood

A Poem by Mitchell J.U.
"

You can never be prepared for everything in life but you can expect life to continue moving on... regardless if you are ready or not.

"
Father turned to me
"Summer ends. Are you ready for the Fall?"
In all honesty I replied
"No... Yet it approaches. Then Winter... Spring. Then Summer once more."
He smiled.
I was ready, after all.

WOW! This is a great snippet from an interesting mind. I usually don't prefer something this brief, as these leave me wanting more. But in this case, you've made a fulsome & satisfying point that doesn't leave a reader feeling more is needed. This is a great example of the old writing adage: SHOW don't tell (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

I like these brief lines. From a parents point of view your Father had you prepared. You conveyed to him that life moves through the seasons, that nothing stands still. From cold to warmth, from the harshness of winter through to the fruits of summer. We are all on a journey.
