Yellow atop blue


Beside the stream I lingered
My daughter at my side
We sat beneath the summer son
And watched the rippling tide

Between we two a bouquet sat
Dandelions freshly took
One by one the yellow gems
Met softly with the brook

The current gently bid the gem
Too far for us to see
Much like life will all too soon
Carry my child from me.


This is a poem I wrote to go along with some pictures my daughter took for her 4-H photography project. I hope you enjoy both the words and the images.

Wow... this is beautiful! I have chill bumps from the depth of your images ... both words and photos.

This one needs to be published. Have you thought about publishing your work? You should!

I agree. These words and pictures support each other in a moving way, well done!
