When I ate my lunch last week, sitting at our big dinner table, I stared at the books in my bookcase and a poem started to develop from the titles. Some of you may remember I posted quite some book title haiku photos in 2012 and 2013 (see the complete series in this album.) The poem I found in my bookcase is not a haiku this time, but I still submit it to Haiku My Heart today. I think they will forgive me this escapade to a longer poem…
De kleur paars
Zilver (of het verlies van de onschuld)
Een eigen gezicht
The color purple
Silver (or the loss of innocence)
A face off her own
Rebecca; hostess of the Haiku circle; also started a series on her blog called “Twelve days of mother love” – also called “Twelve days of Mary love”. It’s about posting about the virgin Mary and that is not really in my line. However, Rebecca is not that strict when it comes to ‘rules’, hence her explanation: “Today marks the first day of December beginning twelve days of Mary love. everyone is invited. while this is not about religion, it is about sharing, opening hearts, rejoicing in ultimate mother love.”
So, OK.. mother love – I had to think of a photo of me and my son right away.
This was back in 1994, when Nout was two years old.
Isn’t that the sweetest picture?!
I send you all a warm hug and wish you a nice weekend.
