"Grandma and Grandpa and Mom and I laughed / Over the years standing there photographed / Posing with spring snowballs of memory / In bleached photographs in our Sunday best"

Time-Frozen Snowballs


for Grandma and Grandpa and Mom


Here snowballs bloom on bushes in the spring

They never bloom until the sun shines warm

They wait through wind and flood through drought and storm

They are not fazed by these nor anything

But stubbornly await that day in May

When they see it is time for them to say

That spring has come and that this is their day


Eastern viburnum at home in the west

Grandma and Grandpa and Mom and I laughed

Over the years standing there photographed

Posing with spring snowballs of memory

In bleached photographs in our Sunday best

Blooming through the album leaves of the past

No one is left to take pictures of me


All dead and gone now and I am the last

With these time-frozen snowballs none can see

Thnx Steve for the memories, and even though I am not alone, and I am not the last, there IS NO ONE to take the pictures of me either. Even the ones in my family that say they love me, and accept for who I am, do not take the time to take my picture in all of my nice clothes, makeup, hairstyles, jewelry (what there is of it), and my precious smile. Thnx for sharing Steve. May the Lord Jesus bless you and yours, and be with you always, and at your side constantly. with much love in my heart, stubborn to a fault, joy to the world, peace on earth, & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your little sister, Barbie

Great wrote Steve and the picture is so sharp and clear can almost smell their fragrance in the air. As for being only you I doubt that in reality their spirits surround and envelop you and the snowball tree in a secret harmony of love.

Old photos fade, but old memories sometimes grow stronger with the years.

Oh I love hydrangeas and I want a blue one and reddish one to go with a white one for the front yard. As always this is a good write.
