As a canopy spread over delicate leaves
wilting growth reached for speckled light
finding its way through
Even on the worst days there are the best moments.
BE SOMEONES LIGHT INSTEAD OF EXTINGUISHING YOUR OWN.
This baby face I have never kissed but know so well as it is one I grew up alongside and then again held as my own.
Like a dream, she walked from the water and sat down beside me. No words were spoken. Only a single tear and the haunt in her eyes told me all I needed to know.
It is always a treat when my daughter comes home to visit. She brings her 'children' with her so they can join us for some beach time run and romp sessions.
Finding irony and laughter in life is something I love to do.
