Quenby 1975


two photos of Quenby born in 1975


The light changes from dramatic to subdued

from bold to tints of color

neither looks like the Windsor & Newton watercolor pinks I used

on the watercolor paper

for time has left its footprint

space has come closer

and human perception matured.

My daughter has left her footprints, come closer, and matured.

Now she mothers grand-cats,

dramatic, colorful, with pink tongues, footprints, closer, and maturing.

When the arms on the chair are wide enough…


In 2012, the arms were wide enough@ Quenby’s house


everyone’s cheeks smiled

for the lap, warmth, scent, grand-cats,

and Massachusetts kin
