Her Eyes Opened Wide – 2019 Christmas Gift to Lillian

Homemade gift I made for Lillian. This was great fun! Using a book that was destined for the trash, I randomly opened the book and scanned for phrases to make into a poem. Found Poetry! Challenging! 💙💙💙

I wondered what she could be dreaming about.
Her eyes
opened wide at the sight of
The front display window of the bookstore
by stacks of books
I picked up the pen
That was
something I had time for.
looked up into the sky.
“A reflection of the photographer.”
I thought of my daughter.
that just made the stars all the brighter.

See It. Share It. BE IT … Spread Love Everywhere You Go!
