Great take Eugenia
Thank you, Sadje!
Kids mention age as a higher number (I’m going to be 15 or 16). The enthusiasm to grow up and access adult privileges is obvious.
Yes, and we don’t want them to lose that enthusiasm.
This is wonderful and inciting rational thinking Eugenia. I love the prompt. 💕🌼🌼💕
Thank you so much, Lamittan! 💖
You’re most welcome, Eugi. ❤
Hi Eugi, Can you please describe it?
Lokesh, the prompt image is a child looking at the reflection of himself in what appears to be a glass door. My poem reflects upon our children that don’t have a clear vision while growing up. Empowering them with wisdom will help them get through those growing up (formidable) years. I hope this helps. 😉
Yes, it’s important. Lockdown caused huge loss to the education of children. Thank you for the poem, Eugi.🙂
My pleasure, Lokesh.
I think most of my youth was a blurry mess. I moved around due to my Dad’s jobs. Stability for children is good. The good thing about moving around is that one learns to adapt (and there are many forms of adaptation). Cheers! ~Jules
My youth had its ups and downs. Yes, I agree about having to adapt which seemed to change depending on the situation.
Wow this is a complete change reminds me of that famous song well two actually – you’ll know both …
Fabulous songs both!!
Great poem too with an image that sits with both songs.
Yes! Definitely fabulous songs! Thank you, Rory!
Mm, looks like my last comments disappeared. Great poem, great image. Fantastic blackdrop too.
Thank you, Rory! WP glitch, maybe?
i am not sure, do you have a spam folder Eugenia? I had two links inside the comment links to songs that l thought suited everything – Paint in Black and Fade to Black 🙂 Maybe it was because of those.
I found the songs, Rory! 😉
Excellent – 🙂
I left a comment about the fabulous songs you left letting you know that the links were in my notification email but not in the comment itself. Your comment had to be approved, which I did, and now it has disappeared. Anyway, thanks for sharing the two great songs!
Always a pleasure 🙂
