Happy Father's Day

“We do not need to grieve for the dead. Why should we grieve for them? They are now in a place where there is no more shadow, darkness, loneliness, isolation, or pain. They are home.” John O'Donohue

Joseph M. Verrastro Sr. circa 1958

...and forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet
and the wind longs to play with your hair...

         a dream

         pales sunlight
         diffused by sheer curtains
         plays on my face.
         as I cling to
         a dream of you
         like trying to hold
         after a candle
         has been blown out.    Mary Jones

Lorica of Saint Patrick
I arise today
Through the strength of heaven;
Light of the sun,
Splendor of fire,
Speed of lightning,
Swiftness of the wind,
Depth of the sea,
Stability of the earth,
Firmness of the rock.
