The first true hero of a child is his/her dad!  Everyday together with our dads is a cause to celebrate our roots... Everyday with our children is a cause to celebrate our hopes and dreams...
So Happy Father's Day to you dear fathers :) 
May you have many chances to celebrate your roots, hopes and dreams!

My Father's Hats by Mark Irwin
Sunday mornings I would reach
high into his dark closet while standing
on a chair and tiptoeing reach
higher, touching, sometimes fumbling
the soft crowns and imagine
I was in a forest, wind hymning
through pines, where the musky scent
of rain clinging to damp earth was
his scent I loved, lingering on
bands, leather, and on the inner silk
crowns where I would smell his
hair and almost think I was being
held, or climbing a tree, touching
the yellow fruit, leaves whose scent
was that of clove in the godsome
air, as now, thinking of his fabulous
sleep, I stand on this canyon floor
and watch light slowly close
on water I can't be sure is there.
