One Day in the Eighth Year

Fine Art Child Photography Black and White Portrait, Conceptual

Today is a lazy summer day
I think you've told me 172 times how bored you are
Today your favorite color is pink... and purple
You're reading "The Mouse and the Motorcycle"
and I watch your eyes scan to eat up all the words

Today you will grow up to be an artist... or a cook
I liked the blackberry syrup you made for breakfast
Today I won't care so much about making messes.
One of your dearest friends is 97
I bet you two will have ice cream this afternoon

Today you are still only eight
I'll try not to think about 18, 32 or 84
Today you let me take your picture
"Think of the clouds" I said
While you closed your eyes I pressed the shutter
