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.
