Content To Grow In His Countenance

He was a giant of a man
loomed over every horizon
like a beacon, cast an
unwavering light in the
seasons of my blindness
held me up to the stars
and the moon
see here,
this is my son –

I remained where
his feet were rooted
in the earth, in the fields
and the streams amongst the trees,
content to grow in his countenance.
