New Day

For Amaya’s prompt, Kafka for Children.  As an explanation, I don’t have children nor do I have contact with them. At the age of 6 I had an 8th grade readling level (or higher), I read Mother Goose many decades ago, but I didn’t read Dr. Seuss or any of those writers for children, I have never held a child or baby, and I don’t do rhymes.  I was raised around adults and teenagers.  I don’t know how to write for children. This is the best I can do.  If it doesn’t fit the prompt, then you were warned.  She gave us several quotes to use.  I have written an American Sentence.

New Day
“The world will offer itself to you to be unmasked.” F. Kafka, The Zürau Aphorisms

Every morning I awaken and greet the sunrise with excitement.

    I think it’s a great riff on the prompt – you capture that childhood excitement and delight and curiosity. It’s hard to hold onto it in adulthood.
