Today’s WP Daily Prompt : Fleeting


From crib to grave

From knight to knave

From rags to riches

From riches to rags

From classrooms to boardrooms

From breeches to bridegrooms

From taught to teaching

From reading to writing

From still to beating

From bye to greeting

From loving to fighting 

From living to dying

From nothing to everything

From everything to nothing

From beaten to beating

From loving to hating

From craving to waiting

Time is fleeting 

Time  is fleeting….

So friends…..

My sisters, my first best friends, and I 

Weaving together, a colored tapestry.

Play of Light : Refraction

This is a picture very dear to me.  Its my daughter on horseback taking part in a tournament where she was the youngest participant and the only girl. A proud moment in her young life. And mine.

The play of light capturing her against the sky is something that captured all the hearts of the entire family. A favorite pic…….

Quick quick – What do I do!  What do I do?

Elatedly rushing come thoughts , so so and so!
