Response to "Word Prompts Help Creativity ~week 33 (Photograph) - "Photograph"; "Sunday Dinners"; & "Mobile Pictures"

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Response to "Word Prompts Help Creativity ~Week 33 (photograph) - "Photograph"; "Sunday Dinners"; & "Mobile Pictures" is my last minute write on photograph.

I had something else in mind and I might still do that one in the future, but I was running behind schedule, so I jotted down these lines..

Photograph ~ Acrostic Poem

Points in time

Holding cherished memories

Only meant for our eyes

Treasuring moments

Of the past

Grabbing our hearts attention

Reliving those days

At a time when we need to smile

Placing magic in our eyes

Hugging us from beyond.

Sunday Dinners

She remembers a smoke-filled kitchen

when the adults played penny ante,

after the dishes were washed and dried

on Sunday afternoons at Grandma’s.


The adults eating at the table

while the children took their plates

to a tablecloth on the floor,

inside Granny’s tiny home.


Moments when we all came together

making memories,

taking snapshots,

enjoying life as we knew it.


The days are gone

when tradition was followed,

but the pictures remain

and float back to our hearts

on those sad times when one departs.

Mobile Pictures

Those cameras on our mobile phones,

a handy tool indeed,

lets us flip through a fountain of memories

with just a touch.


A photograph speaking a thousand words

touching our hearts,

making a tear or two drop with just a glance.


On those nights apart from family

a photo brings a bit of warmth and happiness

tugging on a heart that longs for familiarity

sharing a snapshot

as quick as a flash.

Photography takes an instant out of time,

altering life by holding it still.
