“Mom, what is this flower?”
“It is a daffodil, my darling.”

You were my sun, my brightest star.

“Why is it yellow?”
“It is so the bees can find it easily.”

You were the center of my galaxy and my every breath revolved around you.

“Can we bring it home?”
“No, honey. It would wither and die without its roots.”

I don’t plant daffodils anymore. They remind me of your blinding light.

Spinning in this darkness, I long for a black hole to swallow me. Because, everything is better than watching exploding suns bending my universe.

A new issue of Dynamic Range, a magazine featuring women photographers, is out today. It also features my article The History of Women Photographers, third in an ongoing series.

You can buy this and past issues  or you can subscribe to Dynamic Range Magazine for one year on Leanne Cole’s page:

  1. So many sad stories already! Something about that daffodil …
    A beautiful and heartbreaking story. Losing a child is unimaginable, and yet it happens to many. It made me very sad.
    And these last two lines were killer:
    “Spinning in this darkness, I long for a black hole to swallow me. Because, everything is better than watching exploding suns bending my universe.”
