Pictures and Words

 A few random images that move me.

found in unexpected
unnecessary places,
breathes life into
this weary, gritty world.

A father
taking his grown daughter
in his arms,
the two of them dancing
with twenty years of memories
held sacred between.


These five,
kids, grandkids, great grandkids
of scientists and teachers,
playing science together.
(safety glasses…yes!)
Danny would love this.


My Abbey,
first day of Kindergarten,
the exact age here
that her daughter is now.
Missing teeth,
My Little Pony,
wrist bouquet,
shoulder purse,
big smile,
pink pinafore.


Unseen beauty,
in the darkness
of the deepest ocean,
lighted tentacles and a see-through
body, tinted pink. Red eye.
What wonders surround.


Tiny boy,
Blakley built
in your striped overalls,
so quiet and strong.


These two
so young, full
of love and dreams,
hoping for all things good.

it is good we can not
see what the future holds.
Miss you, my dear.
