The Story of a Village #photography #poetry

There were children

that we didn’t hear

there were mamas

burdens to bear

there was water

miles carried away

there was sunshine

 too busy everyday

                                                                                   child at water pump

a well where people praise

water on their heads

children stop to play

we call her Pawell

laughter heard today

sonshine spills from hearts

Catch a wave #winter #snowday #poetry

cold wave

Silent the waves crash

cold pillows they lay

diamond crystals tease

beckon, “come and play”

*

winter’s dance is cold

can you catch the curl

ride it into shore

caught in chilling swirl?

*

frozen is this tide

so pure and crystal light

do not be misled

it will take you for a ride

*

today we  beat the cold

warmth wrapped about our chin

riding winter’s wave

scarf lost into the wind

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
