Super Saturday - The Poetics of Art

For Quote It
“Where we love is home,
Home that the feet may leave,
but not our hearts.”
― Oliver Wendell Holmes

A four-day weekend for the kids!

Saturday Snapshot  As Alyce takes a break, Saturday Snapshot has a new home
My son's entry for this year's PTA Reflections contest - unfortunately, he did not make it to the next level, but he sure did win my heart :)  This was displayed at their Open House last week along with other entries.

At dVerse, Brian has us using the wonderful, amazing, running-out-of-superlative-adjectives-to-describe work of Leovi as prompts for this week's Poetics. So here are my attempts and no matter how much I might try, Leovi's images are matchless!

First Flight - Parent's Pride
Wings spread wide
His first flight
Her little one was off in open space
A look of sheer delight on his face
Proud momma – she looked on
Flying above
Wings spread wide

Looking Out
I stood looking out to sea
The wind blowing on my face
Waves at my feet
Flying hair, billowing skirts
Lost in the sheer thrill of it all
I stood looking out to me

    "Lost in the sheer thrill of it all
    I stood looking out to me"
