What a beautiful painting!! Takes me back to my childhood.

The way this artist painted the grandfather's posture is amazing. You can tell he is an old man.

poem by Therese L. Broderick of New York (USA) (


They skip a generation--clan
features like green-blue eyes
and how they see the day ahead--
dark and narrow, or wide and bright--
and a long tilted jaw preferring
few words, and their slow sauntering
way of speaking. Neither can hear
how like the other he sounds
as they walk down the path
to the school. And their hands--
the same hold on love.

Child walking with grandfather reminds me of the child now an adult looking at this picture and thinking.
I remember this day like it was yesterday. Grandpa took my hand and said lets go. I went and we ended up at the corner store where he bought me an ice cream. On the way back, we didn't say a word. We didn't have to, we were both to busy licking our ice cream.

The light around the two figures, the roof, and on the street is amazing. Very peaceful scene.

Oh, Grandpapa?
Why do we walk so slow?
The night is coming quickly
And there's places we must go.

Oh, my Grandson,
Your pleading I rebuff.
You must enjoy life's journeys
For the end comes soon enough.
