"his father is lost to him", in more ways than one. Nice work.
And His Father loved His beloved Son! But the crown was very heavy, indeed.
This is a lovely Magpie ....
thats very deep... beautiful write
Lovely, thoughtful, and rifewith emotion, affection,and compassion; good poem.There are those lovely lines inthe film BEN HUR; one of Joseph'scustomers, angry that a table hasnot been repaired yet, said,"Where is that son of yours, andwhy does he not take care ofhis father's business?"Joseph said, smiling,"Oh he cares very much, andhe is off as we speak takingcare of his father's business."There was no veil of forgetfulnessfor the infant Jesus, so possiblyhe already felt the weight ofhis sacrifices to come.
Powerful piece, so heartfelt.
A refreshing perspective! Indeed, the mother image dominates in these scenes of a child. Somehow the father image is elusive!
What an interesting take on this photo. "crown is a burden for the baby" really got my attention.
Yes, still so blissfully unaware. Blue always lifts my mood, as well. Beautiful piece.
This is lovely!
Oh, that's wonderful. Yes, the father/son relationship makes it so fresh. Thanks for commenting on mine as well.
This one is very interesting. Nice Magpie.
Oh, I like this very much! "crown is a burden for the baby too." How very true... Rick
Poor child unaware of his great loss. Have a great weekend.

A beautiful poem for the prompt.
Gautami...You are such a fantastic writer!I Loved your 55!Thank You so much for playing, and please have a Kick Ass Week-End...G
the burden of the crown passed so one day too he may hold a baby and feel the same...
Love the perspective of this - finely tuned!
So sad for the baby, and the king as well.
That crown is a burden. Then later the cross comes. Great 55.
Oooooo nice 55! Very powerful!
Oh my goodness...such poignancy!! Powerful words in such a short 55. Great.My Flash 55 is posted Scroll down below my show n tell for Friday to find it.Have a great weekend.
thats a lovely way of putting it and the picture you chose was a perfect choice.Tina
Disturbing; unfortunatley true all too often.:)
Interesting- yet he will come to know his father...thanks.
Yes, he has his mother, but his Father has put him up for adoption by the faceless crowd. Nice mag, and excellent 55.
This was wonderful my friend. What a gifted writer you are. Have a great Friday :)
Succinct but very powerful! Nice...
Quite a different take on that picture than the others I've read. Nice job, Gautami!
nice write....the crown is indeed heavy...love your take on the prompt...bkm
...I like so much of it. I just don't understand the part where you say "he wanted his father to love him". It has certainly made me think and think but I don't understand why you put that. But that is OK - poetry is like that. ;)
"crown is a burden for the baby too" Yes. So much going on here--as kathew wrote, it is very thoughtful indeed. Thank you.
There is a beautiful compassion and love in your thougts here....a lovely Magpie! :-)
Lovely and deep, Gautami
