Illume

In the dark
the freshly licensed driver
made ready for her maiden journey.

Her sentimental mother
stocking footed in the cold
readied the camera.

(the picture would have been here)

Instead
her startled mother
jumped up and down
waved her arms
muttered.

The new driver left with unlit headlights.

Practicality supersedes picture taking. Maddeningly so.

It's so seldom that picture-pefect moments actually are. ;-)
