Marie



A man reflects on
the first impression



via


that she



via



via



via

 
has made on him.

Stalled breath captures

a wanderer's prayer

at her first encounter

with 

a wild thing  



tumblr



and the hour that you 

laid eyes on 

your child




  
it was




But for me 

that moment struck

when I was old enough 

to reach up 

at her photo on the console 

where she sat 

for years.

It was a face that time forgot


castles crowns and cottages




but my mother's stories
   

kept her alive.

I had always wondered, however

 if my grandmother

Marie

would 

have loved 

me



1978


at first sight.


That first impression can make  

 such





But I loved you 

the first time 

I saw you


castles crowns and cottages


and 


I always will love you, Marie.
