Poetic Dan

I know you don't want to but we all will

I know we really don't want to but we always will, carry that great weight with loves support at our heals. 


Sometimes it can be seen, although often it can not. The moments when we feel broken and it's all illusions holding up 


Yet between the ordinary and bland, spectacular or grand. You'll see lines in the palm, now trace back on golden sands. 


With a gift of holding anothers hand.

    Lovely words , Dan 🙂 sorry to hear of your struggles this week

    • Poetic Dan

      That's OK at least I'm still here and trying my best to shine! It's all we can do, one rhyme at a time..

      Always appreciate yours my friend

      I love seeing vids of your beautiful daughter growing up.

      That wonderful trust from a tiny one when they reach out to hold your hand - priceless even though it may be an everyday experience and taken for granted.

      • Poetic Dan

        So true my friend I thought the first two would be holding it forever but now it's all a memory and hopefully keep helping me appreciate this one that little bit more!

        Have a wonderful weekend buddy

        May those golden sands fill your life forever Dan.
        Such a wonderful video showing such a very happy young lady exploring her world knowing that dad is always there for her.

            loved the imagery of the 'lines in the palm'
            and the 'trace back on golden sands'
            what a succinct distillation of the passing of Time...
            (beautifully woven
            your words only outshined, by her Sparkling smile)
            thanks for sharing, my friend
            we almost there
            ten more days and this long January will be over
            and Spring will be teasing it us, with its reinvigorating

            • Poetic Dan

              Ha that so true spring is not far away but I'm sure February will have a lot to say..

              Always appreciated my friend
