The Sea

By Damien Knight

The sea flows and ebbs, forward and back
The skies glimmer with pinks and reds
My daughter plays in the sand, mouth slack
Her hands thoughtful as she builds her castle
The horizon a boat speeds by waves break
My son runs along the line foot prints in sand
He charges kicks down her castle
“Daddy!” she cries and I take her hand
The sky is purple now, I gather her shovel and bucket
Her pretty strawberry head cries
“You only have eachother,” I scold, “dont forget.”
“Yes sir,” they whimper as we pack our things
The sea which was glistening turquoise earlier
Now reflected the purple black sky
My young ones at heel to the hotel
These are the memories I won’t let pass by

How to Plant a Flower

By Damien Knight 
How to plant a flower

Buy seeds, pots and soil

Place soil in starting pot 

Push thumb in soil

Place seed in thumb print

Cover with dirt and water

Simple, how to raise a child

Lots of love, little fuss

Not as easy as a flower

But just as rewarding
