prompt #10, hour 7 ~ sevenling


My father was a complex man:
Honourable, wounded, dark of wit & mind
Not always good with children.

These things he also gave into my hand:
Myth & legend, healing, the books I read of every kind,
Family to pass down to children.

I am as contradictory as he was.

  1. Sorry. . . pressed too soon. I like how you started with his characteristics alone, showed how he gave three gifts directly to you, and then expanded to additional gift you now give to your children. The steady expansion added to his (and your) complexity.
