I saw my daughter today

From my chair I gaze upon her Just across the room sits A pink scarfed girl One I’ve seen many times before Her mouth moves… gracefully And ever so much I watch in loving wonder Intrigued by what she wonders Beneath the cotton draped layers Of her knitted accessory As her eyes join mine once more And pierce my reality Filling it with schoolgirl imagery She twirls the frayed ends Of her knitted accessory With careless innocence As she speaks to the monkey On her finger and then to me Freeing me from the bounds Of my reality From the limitations Of a lost imagination Lay

    This really touched my heart Lay. As a mother also I have often just sat and gazed in wonder. I want to thank you for my 4th placement in your Greatest Gift Contest. You have made me very happy.
