Greatness Through Generations

 On a stool she sat at Greatfather's
 feet,
 He feeding her ice cream as a
 birthday treat.

 Two years old sitting up straight,
 to catch each yummy spoonful, 
 Mouths open both of them.,
 as the ice cream goes in.

 Sun shining brightly in the bay 
 window, leaving both in a cool-
 shaded silhouette .

 A random picture taken,
turns a sweet gesture into
a loving memory for the two 
of them.

Immortalized now forever in time,
 in a large frame,
on a table beside the big green
 chair ,
Only he sits in.

Heart Series

This is a real picture my
grandson took ,shaded out the color,
framed it and gave to my husband. 
A family treasure  forever.

    Hi Anne, yes I remember this one from lulu, liked it then just as much, though it is hard to imagine a sunny day, it is night here and the wind and rain are howling outside,I can't think of more enchanting whether and I'm very sorry for the people that don't like it (for example my elder sister)

    Family photos are a great treasure, and a great legacy to leave. A beautifully penned piece, Anne. Kind regards, Robert.
