Snapshot

Tied to the ground by grasses
I watch the sea breath
Over the distant shore
An angel dreamt you

Your face a mirror reflecting
The silence I reach
Through time for your
Gentle breathless smile

It glitters drifting out singing
With the gulls till they
And I-are watching
Just a faded paper beach
Framed by a winter sky

This gives me the impression you are reaching out and thinking of your lost child, or is it something else. It paints a beautiful, peaceful picture of wonder.

Laura, amie, gulnaz, russel not so much lost as becoming a teenager. Yes I do miss him. I was flicking through the snap shots. I know my beautiful boy is still in there, occasionally he serfaces and I catch sight of the adult he may one day be. But it's a difficult time for us both. Lorena, thank-you for returning the compliment drop by again. Pincusion loved your poem too
