Hope that you enjoy this one,

you can write from the child's perspective, you can also write from the father's perspective.

you can do adult content, or children's literature,

have fun!

I've taken a leap and gone for the subject of reflection; I'm afraid the baby doesn't get a look in!

Ina said...

Hi sorry to be so late. 2 days ago my first grandchild was born, the poem I enter here was written the day before her birth and somehow I think fits this slam theme very well. Thank you aalso for the interview. I will try and read many entries. :)

Hi folks. Emanita01 here.

Sorry to post such darkness under such a wonderful image, but this story is inspired by something I've recently experienced.

Putting the two together, I wondered if the fatber in my story ever looked at his son in this manner.

My muses took it from there.
We'll get back to that fundamental question...but it looks like this is not going to be a short story.

I'm not sure if I'm really done with my entry yet, but thought I should post it so I don't miss the dead-line... I really wish all fathers (and mothers) could look at their new-born this way! Beautiful prompt!!

If I could work it into Suzie's House, I would, but it's beyond me.
