Poem for a Photo in Duplicate


Top photo, circa 1952...we see
Mother with me, standing on
Land she and my father planned to
Sow with dreams for a future harvest.

But life's everyday
Hardships got in the way.

Bottom photo: here is a
Repeat of the same scene...
A gentle return to remind my
Something of what it cannot recall.

And how sleep seems a goodly thing
