Family FotoFun Friday

We're not going to get my daughter's picture taken on a bunny's lap -- but here's a picture of her with a Easter bunny.

Poetry Thursday -- Image Prompt II (A Little Late)

My older daughter is choosing a college and it is heavy on my mind. So I had to write about it . . .

The Choice

A thousand opportunities
A hundred paths to take,
Now three doors are open,
And there’s a choice to make.

Once a babe in arms – eyes bright,
A child that danced and played,
A teen that wouldn’t listen,
Now a woman to be made.

One door will take her far away
Another keeps her in sight.
The third is not the place for her
The fit is not quite right.

Each one is right,
Each one is wrong,
No matter what,
She’ll soon be gone.

Family Fun Foto Friday -- Feet

Here are my daughter's teeny tiny brand new baby feet --

and her chubby jumpy four month old feet. I think both are as sweet as can be.

Poetry Thursday -- Image Prompt

Deer Valley Petroglyph

The tap, tap, tapping
Of rock upon rock
Chips fly to reveal
A self portrait, two arms, two legs
Time travel in the desert.

Five splayed fingers like those
Curled around the rock
Or tapping a keyboard.
Do you, too, have the burning desire
To shine on after you are gone?

I've created this place to store results of creative work online -- I plan to participate in Poetry Thursdays and Family Fotofun Fridays. I'll also post pictures from my Monday photography class to keep things moving between challenges.

. . . and I'll keep reminding myself:

This isn't like math; there's never a right answer.
