In Tandem - "Possibilites"

My daughter's silk painting (before it was "ironed")

Possibilites

At her fingertips
a rainbow exits,

youthful exuberance
sprinkled like fairy dust
upon pristine avenues
yet untried and 

still aglow 

as her imagination
conquers all

unaware 

she might fail;

her world
still magical.

In unawareness
chance of failure...
less and less.

Daughter-artist will travel far, my prediction. 24-hours...there are no more in any day.
Lovely stuff here.

PEACE!

Such a beautiful, simple way to tell of the naivety of someone who has not experienced life ~ and what a wonderful way to live!

"unaware

her world

It's a sad day when the magic fades.
