You've captured the magic of a moment there.

Julie Jordan Scott

Thank you, Anthony.

I appreciate your comments, so generous each week.

Joseph Harker

Aww! This is really sweet... that must have been some shell. :) Perceiving things like that is a rare gift, I think it's wonderful that you cultivate it in him.


I so enjoyed reading this. Your love of being a mother to your sweet boy is written all over it. Thank you for sharing with us!


Hi Julie,

A serendipitous moment for you and Samuel! I like the third stanza in particular.

Nicole Nicholson

I like this. Your son is very perceptive, and the poem I think does a good job of capturing the moment of discovery. Good job.



I love this piece - it reminds me of so many soft and pleasant thoughts with its far-reaching tone and it touching elements!

David Moolten

I really like how you build on the moment (using wonderfully delicate language and imagery) so that the discovery becomes a lens to look at your relationship with your son, and ultimately his relationship (and yours) with nature, and the cosmos.


I love the fantasy of this poem and yes Mom you are a kid! One of the lucky ones.


This is wonderful! Great tribute to Samuel's seeing!
