Papa, Mama and Winnie

I’ve placed it in the most visible place
This old photo of black and white
Taken in 1943, the edges worn and frayed  
Papa, Mama, Winnie, eyes bright

Though one by one they’ve all gone
They’ve left legacies of love, faith
And the sweet memories linger on
This beautiful photo transmits

When I look at their eyes
Warmth and gentleness residing                   
Dressed in their best, wearing subtle smiles
Beauty is captured, surviving!

    There is something special about meaningful words in groups of three, and you integrated them into the poem here beautifully, Annalise.

    such memories. I love this one from you. I had an Aunt Winnie and she died of cancer last year but nobody even told me. I had to have my Xmas card returned to even find out!!

    love this beautiful write, my friend - I know just how you feel about the comfort of photos. I guess you had the forecast snow and have no power - hope you're enjoying the beauty : )
