Looking at You (aka Reflecting)

REFLECTING

I look at you
sometimes more than
once in a single day
eyes fully open
not wanting to miss
one single moment,
straining to really see
how much of me
is growing
with you, in you;
not wanting you to be me
(not at all!)
but acknowledging all
that I could ever wish for
is already there … within you …
my most amazing work of art.

“A work of art is a world in itself reflecting senses and emotions of the artist’s world.”
~ Hans Hofmann

“Only mothers can think of the future – because they give birth to it in their children.”

Circles of Nostalgia

No longer shiny, no longer new
No longer a sign of me tied to you
My heart doesn’t cry
(Too many years have gone by)
But today as I sit
I’m amazed they still fit!

The Future is in the Harvest

The Future Always Comes

Embracing dreams unfulfilled

Kidney beans after one week

I planted some red kidney beans last week Sunday and only one week later, here we are! I’m excitedly looking forward to harvesting my own beans sometime in the future.

 

Tomato seedlings

I planted tomato seeds for a friend the same day I planted my beans. I was surprised to see these little plants appear after only five days beneath the soil. She is going to be just as excited about her future harvest as I will be about mine 🙂

 

This week’s WordPress Photo Challenge asked us to focus on the future; click here to see more illustrations.
