Poem: The Power

The Power

When you see the picture,
long after the lessons,
and you see with your own eyes
how your words

stayed with him,
how a few brief phrases
passed from you to another
to create such beauty;

you realize the power
and the importance,
of each word, and the understanding
delights, and frightens you, both.


My 10 year old son took this picture a couple of weeks ago, after sitting in on a photography class I was teaching college kids at my church. In this one shot, he synthesized most everything I packed into a 30 minute lecture. Who knew they actually listened? You can click on it for a larger version.
