Family portrait, “Everyone look this way!
Show us how big, how attractive you are;
Hold still for this wonderful moment.”
Each face posed in quiet contentment,
Togetherness is something to behold;
Fun and games to resume quite soon.
The photo, ink on paper shows a stillness,
A brief moment before action springs to view;
If you were there you held your breath
For this composed family portrait,
Knowing that life will resume very quickly.
Let the fun and games begin!
