flies to the surface with long-lasting memories, playing football in a sepia printed world, just me and you. I push the ball with my instep, back and forward the ball slides.
In the next moment we are having a pint together. Now your satisfied look has me breaking the rules for all-day smiles. We walk home and at the corner I see you turn and wave goodbye, happiness never dies.
TomKelly’s ninth poetry collection This Small Patch has recently been published and re-printed by Red Squirrel Press who also published his short story collection Behind the Wall.
Tom says of the poem “Happiness is a snapshot of me and dad together and makes me smile.”
When Good Dadhood first ran, back in 2017, it featured two Special Editions, in addition to the poems appearing on the ‘front page’ of the e-zine. This year, we had much pleasure in again presenting an Easter Special, showcasing eight poems https://gooddadhood.com/easter-special-edition-2020/.
Now, as the 2020 Good Dadhood period approaches its culmination on Fathers’ Day on Sunday 21 June, it is a delight to present another Special Edition, featuring five wonderful poems from Patricia Ace, Zoe Mitchell, JLM Morton and Jenni Wyn Hyatt.
