With excitement and youthful energy she ponders her future;
bars of iron, block her way forward, protecting.
Men of sound mind and good heart have made mistakes,
a lifelong struggle, hers, to set the path straight.

This is for IGWRT's Sunday mini challenge: Koan poetry. HERE is a detailed account of this ancient Chinese poetry. I certainly hope this didn't have a certain rhythm, word count, or rhyme as I don't have any... (Kerry... let me know :)
The iPhone photos are of my daughter on our recent trip to Washington DC which I have yet to post about. I did take photos with my nice Canon, but I found that when sight seeing, it is often hard to make those you are with wait for the perfect shot :) The monument above is the Jefferson Memorial. We paddle boated here at the end of the day (last photo!)
I am a few challenges behind and have rushed my poetry here. I hope I grasped the essence of it... I find it an exciting form as I like short poetry that is packed with insight and feeling. I am sure I will revisit this in the near future.
and my blue toe which obviously needed a touch up!
