a Photographic Journey by Meryl


Crossing campus
bundled in blue
how many chapters
have I been through
back to beginning
targets and goals
how about hopscotch
free no tolls

  1. Ahhh- a phantom shot! Yay! Perfect for end of college year. Great capture and sweet poem to match. Wonder how many college student would trade for middle school?? All transitions are tough, but part of growth which is positive!

    • I see.. I’ve just read your linked Transitions.. these can be such difficult times for us mothers.. I can totally relate! These daughters of ours will go on and lead wonderful lives.. and we will just have to do the same, tough as that is!! Maybe I should go back to school myself!?

        Thanks Barbara, glad you found the link below the poem.. it’s not easy to separate…and I guess we’re all perpetual students…have to remember that the learning is just beginning…and by the way, my daughter is passionate about cooking…I’ve sent her your link…:)
