We were born to make manifest the glory of God within us.
It is not just in some; it is in everyone.

Thursday Photo Challenge - School

This is my first school photo:

Writing haiku to go with the photo challenges I'm posting on my website seems to have momentarily kick-started my muse. I surprised myself last week with my first new poem in over three years! Since it goes with the photo above, I thought I'd bore you with it...

Latham, ACT, 1979.

Six years old,
walking solitary to school,
I swept clean the sand
under trailing limbs of wattle
and bottle-brush.

Returning hours later,
I tried to read
what the trees
had written.
