The Best Part of My Day

...was holding a baby.

          Head like velvet
          Tongue clicks softly
          Blue eyes look up
          In my face
          Like I've hung the moon.

          Head bobs
          Arms akimbo
          Relaxing into
          Peaceful slumber.

  1. Hi Karen,
    No, I've not read the book, but probably need to.
    Glad you like the pics. Black and White photography makes you think...the rules are brutal, but once mastered, the results can be profound. When you take away the color, only the essence is left. That's nice. You'll love my next one. I post every Friday.
    ...akimbo...great word...and wonderful sentiments. Babies are exactly like you describe. Poems...another form of essence, right?
    God's blessings on you and family.
