A Poem – My Light

Her face reflects an image

An image carried through generations

Flesh and bones of others behind them

A smile I have seen before

A shade of blue, a strand of hair

Recaptured from moments past

We each travel back in time

Carrying forward the small details of others

Divided with one to make a whole

Which will be divided again

This is my child, my light

She will shine for seasons afar

Beyond the seasons I have left

To another face that reflects an image

An image shared with one more generation

An original composition by the author of Ends and Beginnings


About ends and beginnings blog

I am a frustrated writer and poet waiting to be discovered. A stand-up philosopher performing on a street corner near you. A Christian with questions but I don’t want to hear your answers. A Buddhist with a bumper sticker on my truck to prove it. A collector of quotes. A grower of lettuce. The Patron Saint of earthworms who name their children after me. A cyclist whose big ass strains the seams of his Lycra bibs. I am American by birth, Southern by the grace of God. My goal in life is to leave an imprint on the lives of the people I love not a footprint on the earth. I am a son, a husband, a father composed of 65%-Oxygen, 18%-Carbon, 10%-Hydrogen, 3%-Nitrogen, 3%-Diet Coke and 1%-Oreo.
