Upstream

Photo ~ Diana Matisz
Rare stolen moment
little body at rest
study in contemplation
of up-stream, around-the-bend,
i-wonder. 

Light-weight of an eight year
old world takes five on thin
shoulders, splashes of dragons
and space travel eddy,
imagination at full spate.

Too soon he'll rise and wade
through currents of curiosity
to discover what waits for him
in a somewhere else from
where he's been.

  3. Beautifully written! It reminds me of my son when he was eight and now at twenty and one he not only wades but rushes through these currents...a stolen moment...yes!
