Reunion 2019

Somewhere above the sun
Mor Mor, Far Far,
Grampa and Gramma Hallberg,
Pat, Jay,
Ina, Wes,
Bertha, Bud,
Florence and Milt
shine bright,
smile so proud,
knowing they live on.
Three generations strong
remember.
Still gather
to laugh, love and care.

“Far Far” is my father’s father in Swedish; “Mor Mor”, my mother’s mother. Photos from this past weekend’s family reunion in the Adirondacks. See previous poem for fun pics!

Quadrille (44 words sans title) with prompt word “sun” written for dVerse.

    Nothing is better than being with family! Our ancestors do live on through our lives and generations beyond. ❤

    Family becomes the brightest jewel for each of us as we Age. And, of course we all hope that beyond the veil the biggest reunion ever awaits.

    Wonderful thoughts of family: those who have gone before us, yet live on in us.

    What a lovely occasion to write about, Lill, and how wonderful that you not only have all those family members to gather together but also those ‘somewhere above the sun’.
