FWF Free Write Friday – Image



He couldn’t stop staring at the page in his book, this was his great-great grandfather’s dream. The sepia image of the man, a stranger in the landscape, ‘the birdman’ the locals had called him, according to his grandfather.

Dear Child,

Although you may never get to meet me I want you to know that you have been born into a family of high ambition. In this book I have left you my little Prince or Princess, on page 73 you will find a picture of your great-great-great grandfather. Think of him what you will, you will see he was a man of dreams. He held his most precious love there in that cage, to protect it forever, his feathered friend. If I could keep you safe you know I would. I only wish that I could be here for you, always, guess I am a dreamer too.

Know that you were much loved by all who knew you before you became you. Just like this photo, I carry my sepia image of you there in your mother’s womb, close to my heart in my jacket pocket all day. There you will stay in my heart forever and I hope I in yours.

This world will be a flight of freedom for you, take every opportunity, no matter how insane it looks and know this sweet one, you are loved.

Lots of Love

Daddy x

  1. Awesome read, and like Sean, I enjoyed that you chose to write it as a letter.

    Also, I just want to say thank you for being so loyal to FWF and for commenting everyone’s work. That means a lot to me that you take time to read the others and not just ‘post & adios!’ …so to speak lol! Thanks a bunch! ♥

    • You’re welcome. I was both in awe and overjoyed by your blog when I 1st found it. All the blossom and graphics. I see you have made some changes. I know the content’s good.:-)
      Sometimes time or online access beats my blogging, but I believe in taking part in the experience fully, both as a reader and a writer.

      • Your kindness is appreciated by both myself and those you comment for FWF. Love when people make connections!

        And I am debating going back to the blossoms. For now, I needed a change.

      • Awww well like I said although I was enticed in by the blossom it is good to have a change. I foresee having to edit my whole theme to develop my blog, bit of a shame because I love the matala theme!
