Celebrating Father’s Day

In honor of Father’s Day, I am sharing two poems my dad, Rich Latta, wrote. One is about life and the other is about me. What AMAZES me about these poems which were written many years ago is that each of their messages is as true today as the day Dad wrote them. May these poems inspire you to cultivate your creativity, something that my dad was always pursuing.

Life
That brief
Glimpse we
Get into who
And what we are
Seems like
A mere
Flash one
Hopes never
Goes out.

Tena
You’ve run through
tall fields of thick
grass struggling against
the odds of failure
and defeat and now
covered with the pollen
of knowledge you
can grow into a
flowering field of plants.
