Colors of Dad

Palette is ready
Mixed and filled with my version
The colors of you dad.

Brush poised above the canvas

A recliner in the corner
And there you are
Newspaper open and a football game on
Waiting for mother to finish
tidying up

There she is
Sitting on the couch near you
Your hands a loving bridge

To paint you on your own

Changing to a pencil
I want to get the details right

Another corner of the canvas
A truck and camper take shape
Folding chairs
So much laughter

And now the center of the canvas

You’re home from work
Mother’s in the kitchen
You embrace
The long embrace
