Today Rather than Yesterday #parenting #poetry

birthday balloons

 

 

where do you find yourself

in the rabbit hole of yesterday

pulling yourself toward today

or rushing back grasping at the past

wishing wanting

its like water slipped through your fingertips

I can’t hold you back as I trip

I never really wanted to try

flying free on winds invigoratingly high

but there are nights

sober moments where I hear screeching tires so near

I want to place a warm bundle back in the crib

singing made up lullabies

and whisper to little elf-like ears

“I love you”

piglet and winnie

Today is the birthday of my youngest and I want to climb back to the rabbit hole of yesterday and hold her small hand.

Children bring a smile to our culture #wordpress #weeklyphotochallenge #photography

This week The daily post weekly photo challenge prompt is “Culture.” There is an entire culture that centers on children. I realized that through each picture there was color and smiles.

Facets (this is half blog half poem or a bloem)

Ever look at the many facets of a gem?

pick up the angles in perfect symmetry

light cascades off the jewel

the end result a radiant beauty

***

What about the many facets of life?

Life starts out in the small perfection of a child

The child continues to grow

Light reflects off life

Angles define who we are

Beauty is the result of years of work

Even in old age the angles reflect value- wisdom

***

The facets of both the jewel and the life

give definition

One has monetary worth

The other intrinsic value

When all is said and done

The jewel and the life

earned value in our world

***

GAZE UPON IT’S BEAUTY BEFORE IT’S GONE
