A New Life

Hiccups and laughs,

Joy to be heard,

A crack of a smile,

a glance at a bird.

The baby is yawning,

mommy is aware

and all through the nap

noise is handled with care.

Now you’re up

and you smiling

no more fuss

no more crying.

The joy of new life

is a blessing.


Weekly Photo Challenge: Renewal

Everything old is new again!  This re-purposed sculpture was spotted basking by the barn at a Corn Maze at Treinen Farm just outside of Madison, Wisconsin.  Using old parts from cars, machines, and other items around the farm, the artist created several creatures for our enjoyment.  This one looks like a raccoon. See the eyes? It gives it away.

Let it loose.

Flee from bondage like a dove.

Soar like an eagle.


It rattle the bars of the cage

A metal trap

It scrapes the sides, it flits from

Top to bottom to left to right


For an escape.

A gap.

A glint of precious light


It yearns for liberation.


Knock down the barriers

Towering over your heart,

Closing in

Don’t you feel the claustrophobia?


Knock down the barriers

See the beautiful sights that you have missed out on

Above all


Release your soul.
