a flash of golden memories, 
from the womb to the tomb, 
reflections past to present 

preserved for future generations 
so as not to be forgotten, 
recorded imagery of a time, 
stored away for another day, 
to be discovered and reminisced 

those who knew not the subject
play the game of discovery
to see who had their name, 
to study the history, 
from whence they came 

a visual chronology of family fame, 
your own, one day the same, 
a loving vision into the past, 
maybe some things do last

    This would be a great poem for those in my church who really get into geneology, Mac. And even though I do not do a lot of genelogoy myself, I have TONS of photos, and can really appreciate this nice little poem you have penned. thanks for your really nice comment to my pantoum poem. LUv, Andrea
