Father’s Day Haiku

As the years pass by ~

He appears out of nowhere~

I am my father


Me, dad, and Brian. Corky’s Diner in Salina, Kansas. May 2019.

I have reached that moment in my life, that realization that I am my father.  I am the man I am because of my father’s influence and how he raised my brother and I. We are not exact duplicates, but I see him in me. And I am okay with that! Thanks Dad!
