June 16.19: Postcards from Emmy

Eyes up

or dead ahead

full-faced

uncorseted

youthful

 oaken vertebrae

steel-enforced

DNA.

Downcast eyes

will not attend

the future that

these two portend.

Fearless Girl times two

foreseeing

each steadfast

in her own being.

 

To all the dads who have given the world Fearless Girls, a very happy Fathers’ Day!

 

With thanks to the unnamed photographer,

to sculptor Kristen Visbal,

and, of course, to Emmy.

New Year’s Eve 2018

 

Celebrating is an art

you can’t be ordinary

but must be part Crayola box

part fearless visionary.

The virtue of the party hat

is very widely known

and if your name is Emmy

there’ll be an ice cream cone.

Here’s celebrating you, dear reader,

and those you hold most dear!

May there be good aplenty

in your coming year!

.

 

Happy New Year, dear reader!

The old year was tough on optimism, but you as readers and fellow bloggers

have made many a bright spot in it. Thanks!

 

I’m not sure who took this picture, but once again here is the irrepressible Emmy

celebrating everything.
