Poetry from Christopher Bernard

The Good Father


He is the mountain
anchoring the horizon.
He is the sea
holding candles for stars.
He is the law
on the tablet of wisdom.
He is both wind
and the sheltering wall.

He is the stone
foundation of homeland.
He is the sun
raising day to the sky.
He is the rock
his son builds his whole soul on,
and his daughter
gets her wings from his eye.
