Sunset by Lake Ginninderra, Canberra

Hop, stop, cherish

Walk, run, or dawdle

sit, breathe, and take a minute

moments don’t repeat

Sunset by the Lake Burly Griffin, Canberra, Australia

Oh, the fall

Tall, erect, in line

like our soldiers sent to war

except, more alive

Take a walk

sun-setting tree tops

and a cloud-covered moonshine

a heaven on earth

Walk me down the aisle

Walking down this aisle - by Lake Ginninderra in Canberra
Walking down this aisle – by Lake Ginninderra in Canberra

Dear dad,
as I walk down this aisle
with my eyes streaming
and my soul dreaming
my heart is filled with joy
with every step I take
freshness breezes through my hair
and a chillness numbs my knuckles
as I clench, I know it’s only fair
that you join me with chuckles
as twilight chases the winter noon
arm in arm, as father and child
dipping toes in a solitary lagoon
watching the sun set himself
down below in Down Under
dear dad, wish you were here
to walk with me down this aisle
as I move on to an all new home


P.S: I just relocated to Canberra, Australia, and this poem was inspired by this wonderful walkway.

Fraying photographs

desperate to keep intact

long gone memories
