Connections: January 7

2 Comments

SANYO DIGITAL CAMERATen-HUT!

Chin UP!

Chest OUT!

No lay-about!

Nostrils flared!

Oak fangs bared!

Nothing dreaded,

level-headed!

Sears-Roebuck faithful

snarling and wraithful

single-pawed

iron-jawed,

sentry and friend

to unseen end.

A century’s guard

in service unmarred

to Unkown, then Pauline,

then Catherine, then Maureen.

Generations align

in family sign:

my great-grandma’s

my grandma’s

now mine.

  1. I love the order and procession of the generations in this one. Sometimes the best part of life is in the details.

  2. And I love the image of the procession of the generations. You are very right about the details!

    Thanks!
