Grandpa Remembered

by Mark D. R.

wizened old man
sits in stoic silence 
recalling life 

Memories writing prompt entry
Writing Prompt
Look at some old photographs and write about a memory or a thought that they give you. If possible (not required) include the image in your poem.

The photo is my Grandpa in his 80s or early 90s. He lived in two centuries and died at 93; his father lived the same number of years. He spoke five languages. In his home, I only heard two, including English.

I think he would embrace our digital world and likely would have gifted his grandchildren with personal computers or iPhones.
