flash Fiction Friday- a moment

Every Friday, or when you find time, write a short story, 
poem or prose. 55 words no more no less, then report to the g-man!!

"The falling of leaves turned amber with age
A moment it seems of youth turned a page

The lining of purple turned deep in the sky
A moment so quickly as day passes by

As seasons pass by, nights turn to day
A moment seems brief for
A life that has so much to say"

Here ya go g-man this is dedicated to my daughter, who is four and seems to talk for ever and ever and ever and ever and, oh you get it, i will have to record her 'too cuteness' to show you how amazing she is and how many words she can get out in just one breathe!!

oh how i will miss this, these moments in time that are not going to be here for ever, i know because my oldest stopped talking a long time ago to me. and now she spends most of her time hiding in her room. sulking.

So to the bean, for always having such a cheerful disposition, may you always be happy and may you always know how much your smile means to me!!

One of my favorite quotes today; "Smile, it increases your face value!"- Dolly Parton in Steal Magnolias

Yes, the daughters become angry strangers for a while. I think I prayed for my kiddo for years before she came out of her messy little cave and actually smiled at me again. Today, at 25, she is once again the sweet young lady she was at four. Thank God for sobriety and the fellowship. They kept me sane!

Adorable story for ff55
I wish I would have thought of recording my two sons, especially the older one -- who talked up a storm, now well not so much - a grown -up now.

Enjoy the moment

The years fly by so quickly, enjoy every single second of your children's formative years. :)

You did great with your 55!
She is a cutie...and my youngest used to talk and talk and talk too...she has slowed down a bit.
I do hope your oldest comes around again and you both can enjoy each other.

you are wise not to be wishing this time away as so many parents do. savor every moment. give lots of hugs and celebrate who she is all along the way.

Sweetness and sorrow together. I'm sure the oldest will come around - everybody needs a momma.

Nice 55!
