#NaPoWriMo Haiku of Life 1977 and 1978

entry picture


Watching you struggle
your mum didn't know how to say
you were colourblind.

(I was around 5 when I had to do a test which proved 
me colourblind and it took my mother days to explain to 
me I was different)


Step in my footsteps
your father barked walking us
to school in the snow.

(Another early memory – 1978 was a terrible winter with my dad unable to get to work, 
walked us to school in the heavy snow)

Colour is seen
inside every poem
white is the paper
black is the pen.

Love melted the snow
when your Father
picked you up from school.
