Fearless climber of mine

Daring ascending the doom.

Held only by his wit

Up to where the clouds loom.


I'm but an insect below

His beyond my horizon gaze

He's circumspect

Scaling aerial ways unfrayed


Watching him grow aloft

Unburdened by resentment,

 An angel's demeanor soft,

Of character and contentment.


My baby, my boy, my son, now giant of a man.

Your Dad, beneath, face aglow, a most adamant fan.



Augustus / Folsom, Louisiana / November 2016

                    Thanks Pharaoh. I'm sure it must appear tame compared to your bold style. I really appreciate your comment.
