This is how Asher counts
while playing hide-n-seek.
He counts to five, very slowly
with his ears covered
and his eyes scrunched shut
and then he

as if his little routine was entirely necessary.

(The above photo

was taken at The Point Of ROAR. You're welcome.)

His roar is not quiet at all,
but it's all he hears with his covered ears,
so to him?

Sometimes that's what we all need to do, huh?
Block out the world and let out a roar.
And then we're off to seek and find...

Go ahead,
and then

Your insides will thank you.

P.S. I'm getting back into a more regular writing routine over at the Mama Manifesto. I have a post over there today about kids and how early in life they learn to hide their feelings. (I know, ACK!) Go on and check it out if you'd like. I promise it ends with hope. (Grandma, click on the bold words 'check it out' and you'll end up there. Love you!)
