Woman's Face


mother's face
always beautiful,
to child's eyes 

~0~0

daughter's face,
promise of woman,
father's fears

~0~0

a woman in love, 
no alterations needed,
fresh as a daisy

  2. Nice progression into this woman's adulthood. I can feel the rest of the story not yet written. Some of it is sad.
