In the picture
he squints at the camera,
arm around her shoulders,
smile beneath his moustache.
In the picture
she gazes up at him,
arm around him,
smile beneath her floppy sun hat.
The frame is one of those
generic cardboard frames,
from a vacation or a cruise.
The picture is
anything but generic.
Man and woman,
both widowed,
both with grown children,
both with love in their hearts.
Maybe they won’t stay as one
forever,
but this picture has captured
their happiness in
being
together.

I wrote this aboout a picture that I saw in my great aunt's house. The pure happiness that radiated from it was so complete, it just inspired me to write about it.
