Best Poem of Cherret Leakey

What Is Fathering?

Whenever i looked at my father,
You know what i saw?
I saw a dad.
I insist i saw-
I wasn't told, you know-
He was a father in a man.
Further into being a father,
He was a dad.
In the outer world,
A man, he was.
But in my world
A dad, a father and a man;
A true one.
At least in my childhood eyes.

Cherret Leakey.

A Portrait

What is in a portrait?
A lifeless and emotionless stare.
The clock will always tick
Signaling the progress of time
While the stare
Will take no notice of that.

The pictured is dynamic
Taking notice of the ticking clock

[Hata Bildir]
