The Day

The Day Karen Arnold
Karen Arnold

The vintage picture hung in the foyer

Prominently portraying the day

That day that grandma became a bride

Each family member filled with pride


The items in the portrait tell of history

Of a time when people had a soft mystery

Seemingly simpler days gone by

Virtue and honor without asking why


The vintage picture hung in the foyer


Prompt Word:


❤ ❤ ❤

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.

  1. old wedding pics are gorgeous. I was at a wake last week and I saw my aunt’s mum’s wedding pic and she looked like a princess. And you’re right about the mystery. Maybe it’s the black and white portrayal or the soft focus but there is definitely something undefinable about them.
