“Frame by Frame”

prompt: "snapshot"

They make due
With a condensed
Version of
Childhood, seeing the

Highlights, the
Calculated shots, with
Santa Claus and birthday
Cakes, and the faces
Made at the first taste of

Cereal. Never the
Everyday things, the
Bottles, the bath times.

They watch their child’s
Children grow up with each
Flash of the
Camera and with every
Envelope of
Photos that makes its
Way across the miles;

Remembering how it was to
Watch a child
Blossom in real
Time and then
Fill in the blanks.
