Archive Friday

It was 12th November 2004, and I had written a small poem inspired by a photo taken way back in 1983.

This is the photo…

This was the poem…

Tiny brown haired girl
Mighty brown skinned boy
Fight a battle, struggling
To have more of Auntie’s legs
Both wanted more
Both wanted all
Both wanted to
Bump the other off
Who will win the battle
For Auntie’s legs?

I actually remember when this photo was taken. My cousin, Peter, and I were fighting each other for more leg room on Aunty's lap. We were both strong willed baby kids and seemed to be constantly at loggerheads with each other. I think this photo just says it all.
