the turning

my 8 yr old

decided to write a short poem

(“actually, it’ll be an ode, mama” he told me matter-of-factly)

for his sister’s 15th birthday.

SANYO DIGITAL CAMERASisi is my sister’s name,
Once a year we go to Maine.
Hidden‘s a story we are writing,
It is so much better than fighting.


…and off we go into the great blue yonder of another year

as of yet unknown.


baby girl.

oh how i love watching you become.

‘unknown’ taken from 48:6-7 of isaiah.

One thought on “the turning

  1. Happy Birthday Sisi!
    I’ve always wondered about the spelling of that great name.
    I love the poem and the pictures too.
