in the red shirt holding the toy cars
youngest of two, a serious face, looking pensive
That’s my sister
in the yellow sitting on my dads lap
laughing and looking off to her left
That’s my mom
with her hair tucked behind her ears
in a summer dress covered with peasant flowers
That’s my dad
Dark hair, young, glasses
Happy and proud holding his daughter on his lap
Or is that me?
with my dark hair, young, glasses
Happy and proud holding my daughter in my lap
Then who is the boy in the red shirt?
Day 2 prompt: Write a poem that takes the form of a family portrait … Planning on an epic comeback here, halfway through National Poetry Writing Month and I’m posting my second poem. I figure if I post two per day from here on in I will slow and steady win this race. Also, I’m planning on surreptitiously changing the publication dates later so that my calendar widget will be consistent … MuahahahHAHAHAHA I’m like a diabolical supervillain of peotry
