|My son and our Mackinaw who is know quite old...|
Possession is not an embrace
but a reluctance to let go, a suffocation,
certainly not an enfolding, a sharing.
Grasp not greedily but with fascination
nor with disregard, but with care.
Today is fragile for it has yet to be formed;
mold opportunity with a potter's hands,
unafraid, with an adventurer's heart.

This is for "Poets United - Midweek Motif - Carp Diem - Seize the Day" The photo doesn't exactly go with the poem but I loved the freedom of it - the exuberance.
