We look away for
an instant, only to find
that our ship has sailed.
This Haiku was written for One Deep Breath.

love this photo and your poem is such a good reminder to me about time, about cherishing my children's childhood. So glad you shared with us today.

This compact poem evokes a flood of meaning, Tara...the loss of one's own youth, the feelings of your child growing up and leaving home, the general fragility of life..and on and on.
And this to me is the beauty of poetry...that some poems can give meaning that the poet perhaps did not even consciously interject but nevertheless inspires.

I love this picture and the focused intensity of this child spinning his sailing dream. Beautiful Tara.
