My parents

Dad,
head in a book,
present
but not;
a universe of ideas and
fascination;
elsewhere.

Mum,
looking,
directly,
fully present.
Always indulgent,
always believing
in me.
Beautiful -
with whitened hair
and thinning 
lips;
Always beautiful.

[Inspired by David Hockney's painting My Parents]
