Releasing Daffodils

Photo by Falls From Tree

Geometry in the moment
In my child's mind grasped
Enlightens both of us

She finds meaning
In the measure of the earth
And I behold knowledge bloom

Upon her face 
Made even more beautiful
Like a winter landscape
Releasing daffodils and catching suns

Upon my face
Dried grasses that could start a fire
Enough to keep us warm
Through any winter.

  2. you have daffs already? Still a few weeks off for us! You've brought them alive - and I now can't wait. Winter is a'movin on...

  5. There is such love in this. Beautiful capture Libby. I adore 'Like a winter landscape
    Releasing daffodils and catching suns'
