*smile*How very, very true.Your poem is so beautiful, and so is your photo of the small hands on an open book.So many questions, so little time to answer them all.
Thanks, Cathy. This is my son, through and through. Those are his hands. I think the more he reads the more questions he has. :)
Laurita, the one blessing you have there is at least he is asking. Could be worse.
Just great Laurita. My daughters are so into books. They're 4 and 6 and it's really encouraging. They also always have a writing pad and pencil with them everywhere they go. If not me then maybe them one day. :-)
Totally digging the poetic form. I love reading it every other line, then going back and reading it completely through again.
Paul, you're absolutely right. I have to say, I learn a lot with these questions too.David, it does sound like you have two young literary stars on the rise. How fortunate that they have a dad who also enjoys the written word.Angel, thanks. I wasn't sure how well this would work out. It was a bit of an experiment.
love this style, what is it called?
Great big smile here.Thank you. Peace...
As I've noted before, Laurita, I'm a poetic numbskull. I liked the form of that poem and its message.
Thanks guys. Michael, if this style has a name I have no idea what it is. I wanted to convey they type of questions asked by my young reader while telling about him. This was what came out. If anyone has any idea if it has a name, I would love to know.
I recall as a kid spending hours reading through the family's set of Funk & Wagnall's Encyclopedias and the Webster dictionary. Sopped up a lot of information that way.LeeMay 3rd A to Z Challenge Reflections Mega Post
Your experiment worked... I caught on a after a few seconds... mucho Effective
I like this very much. Took me a few seconds too, but the experience in those seconds is why it's such an engaging piece. Nice work.
What's on your mind?
