NaPoWriMo 2016 Day 2 Family Portrait

Family Portrait

Simple pleasures
Growing in intensity
Like labour pains,
But in reverse.

I display
Your baby photos
To the exquisite girl
You've brought home to mother

I savour
Each moment
'You both looked so young'
'We were my dear'

You exclaim
'Oh my, Julian's hair'
I try to explain
'It was sentient then

A freak
Accident in a
Top secret lab'
That was our joke.

When we
We're younger than
You two now
The glamour

Of first
Love shines out
Of those grainy pixels
Just as it shines in you.

The Boy
Is not amused
We are, smiling,
Bonding, photographs

Stockpile memories
To share, enjoy
build a bridge
Invite you in

To our family portraits
