An abstract on pink
Large eyes and flaring hair
A mom
A dad
A son
Stick legs and square torsos

Proudly he displays the family

We applaud
We exhibit it to friends
We cherish it
Preserved within the folds of a treasured scrapbook

The child draws his world
Pen gripped by small fingers
A circle
A continuation
A union
Connected by squiggling lines
of trust, happiness, and love

We pause
We notice its significance
We cherish him
Preserved within the folds of embraces and smiles
