I teach my child to think about words; to break them apart. I say, "Breakfast is 'breaking' your 'fast' when you wake."
My child bursts with unexpected insights. One morning, at breakfast, she exclaims, "after- -noon is 'after' 'noon'!"
‘What do you see’ Prompt #161
For Sadje’s weekly #WDYS prompt, she offers this photo of a table set with food, mostly breakfast dishes, and coffee. In the photo, hands are reaching towards food.
We are to use this image as inspiration to produce art.
Let’s write poetry together!
When it comes to partnership, some humans can make their lives alone – it’s possible. But creatively, it’s more like painting: you can’t just use the same colours in every painting. It’s just not an option. You can’t take the same photograph every time and live with art forms with no differences.–Ben Harper (b. 1969)
Would you like to create poetry with me and have a completed poem of yours featured here at the Skeptic’s Kaddish? I am very excited to have launched the ‘Poetry Partners’ initiative and am looking forward to meeting and creating with you… Check it out!

Love it! The lightbulb moments. I wish I could remember connections like these that my girls have made. Tangentially related, even in their teens, there are times they speak a word they’ve generally only read, and mispronounce it. We always tell them, better here at home than in public!

Four daughters, ages 27, 25, 17, and 15. 🙂
