Monday Poetry Train #50

Taking Daddy's Hand
by Joy Renee

When fear pushed
its ugly face into
my dreams
and rampaged through
imagination's hall,
bouncing its
shattering screams
off cracked mirrors,
I reached for Daddy's
hand and saw
fear's visiage disolved
like morning mist
at noon
then scattered on the
brisk breeze of his
stern voice.


Jump on the train

6 tell me a story:

Oh! the mighty power of the daddy!

Whoa, that's strong, moving, and memory-evoking.

Beautiful plus all the adjectives Susan used.

what a wonderful memory and tribute--have you shared this with you dad?

Love that hands-holding graphic, and your poem is very reaffirming. Dads rule!
