snapshoot

when I got off work

I could only open my eyes and see

but just barely

and my brother sent me a

picture I couldn’t see yet

my vision clearly reconvened discreetly

but how could this be, a shot from

not that many years ago that

was when we had colored pics

but this was black and white and

mom looks ravishing and blushing in

her dress with flower on and

dad in a the definitive white tuxedo with

a black tie offering her a glass of wine

with a smile and there is grandpa in

the back with a big

beaming smile that shows all the happy teeth

bringing a few laughs for sure

in the background further

a large crowd cheering and the

moment brings me to tears because

I haven’t seen them all

in a long long time

Except when I visit

the headstones
