Dad & Me ...whimsy

Our next writing assignment was to describe how we remind ourselves of the parent of our gender. This is my attempt to describe my reminding me of dad.

The older I get
the better-looking
my dad was ...
… becuz
his hair and hair style
grace my head.

at morning
his bushy eyebrows
the reflected image of my face


at night
he leaps into the mirror on the landing beaming his semi-snarky smile
with a side dish of sparkling, squinting eyes.

and becuz
when I'm in a good mood
his approving face
smiles at me from every mirror I pass.
