Weekly Photo Challenge: Good Morning

THIS WEEK, SHOW US A PHOTO THAT SAYS “GOOD MORNING!”

It could be a shot taken during your morning walk, the morning vista out your kitchen window, your cat doing a pre-breakfast stretch, or a textured close-up of your oatmeal bubbling away at the stove.

Good Morning

Morning’s a struggle

against yawns,

yearning for a snuggle

Where's my Bear?

Where’s my Bear?

An unkempt bed, a manhandled bear stealing a snooze while I have to make ends meet – that’s my morning glory.

my DNA analysis

3 Oct

My contribution to this week’s writing challenge is a poem.

My DNA Analysis

Who am I

or what am I

is the question.

To be who I am

or to be what I am

is the question, too.

A mother’s daughter

without much resemblance

but for a smile.

A father’s daughter

without much perseverance

but for an idea.

Pragmatic mom

Idealistic dad

In between, I remain

in a limbo, akimbo.

You look like your dad, they say

Aye, you sound like your mom

Listen to her, will you? say they.

Aargh! I say

Leave me alone, I say

Let me be me, I say

No hearsay, this is who I say

Or is it what I say.

Who am I? Why am I?

How am I?

When am I?

A little bit of him

and his shared bits of them

And the rest – of her

and her share of theirs

A little bit of something

some bits of nothing

And nothing much of everything.

I am nothing without them –

my parents

Or am I

Or am I nothing because

of them.

This is who I am.

what I am.

The Silent Mother

That care in her touch!

Hold my hand, son

and walk

to the bus, we’ll walk

That trouble of letting go!

Off you go… careful

There you are

Are you comfortable

That smile in her face!

my son

my little darling son

won’t you always be little for me

The way she beams!

Tears brimming

of joy

hope pride delight
