From the unaware innocence of this photo……….
To the almost rock star awareness of this one ……
I used to marvel at butterflies,
And their whole transformation thing,
But now I must admit,
That I am even more amazed,
By my children’s reactions,
To the adjustments,
That time brings,
And just like a butterfly unfolding its wings,
As their bodies change and grow,
So to, do their minds expand,
Reaching ever outwards,
With the rippling of each new year,
And I admit that I watch them,
With a maternal fascination,
As their increasing sense of awareness,
Begins to emerge more fully,
From beneath the wisdom,
Contained within the heartbeats,
That were once cocooned inside me,
Yet now exist,
So freely and abundantly,
Beneath the miracle,
Of their own individually,
And as I watch their transformation,
I wonder silently to myself,
Whether or not we’re all life’s butterflies,
Our own unique,
Of human transformation?
I love the power of capturing performers in the midst of emotion. 10 points to anyone who recognizes the faces within this shot and can identify how I was able to take it.
The landscape stands,
As a Sentinel,
About this photo: This image when I viewed it through the lens struck me as somehow haunting. It seemed almost as if the landscape itself were standing, silently, like a sentinel, awaiting another day.
