Innocence - published every Aug 26 as it was inspired by my son

Leaves in the tree
Trace the outline
of your face
Its innocence forever etched
In the shadows of the leaves

I see it sway
Develop with the breath
Of the wind
But innocence returns
If I look away

From any angles
You're never changed

The image is wonderful, those warm colours make me trepidate with impatience.I saw the first yellow leaves in a tree the other day.....
The poem is beautiful, Lorraine at her very best! (It makes me wonder if we are ever innocent......are we?)

Brian Miller said...

i think we all see justwhat you described so perfectly written on our childrens faces even in the most trying of circumstances...

Kathy said...

So lucky to have you as a Mom, I'd say! I love the way you celebrate his birthday as much as he does! So sweet.

Please wish him a belated birthday from me.. 22.. To think, we're of the same age!! I wish him all the best, and hope he has a wonderful year ahead... And yeah, I'd say he's so lucky to have you as his mom.. he must be a charming young gentleman!
