Worlds Apart

Quiet spring day, bright sunshine.
Clapboard house, shady porch,
two chairs, lazy dog,
two faces, staring down.

Large egg-shaped body, bent forward,
flannel shirt, bib overalls,
feet planted, hands dangling,
egg-shaped head, face expressionless.

Small egg-shaped body, propped up,
flannel shirt, bib overalls,
pudgy legs bent, toes pointing out,
egg-shaped head, face expressionless.

Grandfather. Grandson.
Side by side, worlds apart.

Years pass …

Quiet spring day, bright sunshine,
crowds of people, veiled hats,
Sunday suits, Sunday dresses,
low murmers, sad faces.

Young man, tall and thin,
brown hair, Beatle cut,
brown suit, pink tie,
shiny shoes; standing; watching.

Stepping forward, leaning out,
arm extended, hand open,
expectant hush, raw earth scent.
red rose falling, rectangular shadow.

Grandson. Grandfather.
Side by side, worlds apart.
