What did you lose? #children #photography #wordpress #poetry

Child's Play
Child’s Play

Something fell

lost in the silvery deep

it had been my treasure to keep

something fell

no longer mine

maybe a crocodile someday will find

something fell

my fingers dipped

now it’s lost because I slipped

water child

How delightful to watch a child as she feels a watery world between her fingertips. So many things found and lost.

This is a photography submission for the WordPress DailyPost – The Weekly Photo Challenge this week is Lost in the Details

At first I thought I’d like the close-up of the little girl but symbolically her mesmerized state is more profound when you take in the color and activity of the entire shot

Published by moondustwriter

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. In 2019, we have an exciting project. We are developing elementary curriculum for Ugandan children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children who want to learn. Along with the curriculum, we hope to develop simple fictions about Uganda for the children to read at school. Trust me books are in short supply. We will use our trusted story tellers: a butterfly and a lion to make the stories come alive. Stay tuned as Bethany and Me put pen to paper. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 10 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2012 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the (quiet) originator of the idea and co-producer of One Stop Poetry. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - thanks for stopping by.

  1. Sjoe, Johan. Ek is woordeloos. Jou werk word net elke keer moeior en moeior!!! Jys is absoluut een van ons land se BESTE fotograwe!!! Baie dankie vir weereens sulke STUNNING foto’s. So bevoorreg om deur n puik fotograaf soos JY afgeneem te kon word! Ek voel of ons dit nou absoluut n maandelikse instelling moet maak, want hierdie mooi werk van jou kan my vir ure ammuseer. Elke bruid verdien n puik fotograaf soos JY. Al wat mens oorhou is die foto’s en onthou en mooi foto’s herinner jou aan daardie spesiale dag met elke spesiale oomblik. Verder het mens niks oor van jou jou troudag buiten natuurlik jou eggenote nie, maar mooi foto’s bly vir ewig!!!! Nogmaals dankie. Jy is nie net n puik fotograaf nie, maar ook n ongelooflike besonderse mens met die mooiste persoonlikheid ooit. Het nog altyd op my gemak gevoel met alle foto’s wat jy van my geneem het. Dankie!
