#BlogFlash2013 “future yet defined (innocence)

21 days, 21 one prompts, an infinite amount of ideas.. 


still soft and gentle

eyes bright, shining up at me

future yet defined

(haiku #3)

As my daughter gets ready for her wedding on Saturday I find myself remembering the day she came into my life. All pink and soft, gentle touches, cooing sounds. She had not be exposed to the ugliness in the world. She had not had to face the obstacles she faces now. AmandaCarol

When did her innocence go? Will she remember what it feels like? Can she hold on to enough of it to maintain the purity which surrounds her and is expressed in her bright shining smile. Her future is still not defined, it is open and ready for her to mold. Let’s hope the loss of some of the innocence does not taint her bright and shinning future as she becomes Mrs. Amanda Carol Zink.

What do you think of when you here innocence?
