Every day, a photograph, a poem. Today the Daily Create was about a golden insignia and so I searched for “golden” in my photos for something golden in my life. This lovely hike up Pashastin Pinnacles State Park on a sunny spring day overlooking the many orchards along State Highway 2 near Leavenworth, WA provided a much needed break in a long drive. I saw within the photo, the journey of life— always up with struggles and smiles— the stones and the sunflowers of life’s journey. This, then, my poem.
Reading into the picture, weaving a story in the chosen path. Life is forward and up, with obstacles. A separation, a divorce leads to a different path, still forward and up through the rocky trail. A change in careers requires education and searching to acquire scholarships, grants, and loans with a part-time job to keep a roof beneath the sky and food on the plate. Stories over and over in life, in the picture, and along the way, the journey brings joy— the bright sunflowers of life: a new blended family and eventually, that teaching career. Each story, different. What’s yours?
