outside the lines
We are taught lines must not be crossed,
that’s why they are drawn in heavy ink.
Fences keep us from becoming lost;
or so those who make them think.
Trapped by artificial constraints,
obscured by thoughts benign.
Why not cross the paint?
Why not color outside the line?
Thank you for yesterday's birthday wishes for my daughters, Jess & Ally. I forgot to mention that photo was taken over 30-years ago. The EXTRA's are them, grown-up.
