April is Poetry Month



A Reality Once

Only a photograph
a split second
        less than a breath
greater than a shadow,
more than a memory.

Laughter and the silence
of sunburnt summers,
innocence and wonder.
             My father’s eyes
  the measure and
magnificence of youth.

Family, friendship,
and what will
               never be again.
Only a photograph.
Images and snapshots
beyond dreams, but
        a reality once. Still.
