Affair of a Kiss

"Keely & Alicia" photo by Jeff Boyle

A Mother's Kiss
by Frances E. W. Harper

My mother's kiss, my mother's kiss,
I feel its impress now;
As in the bright and happy days
She pressed it on my brow.

You say it is a fancied thing
Within my memory fraught;
To me it has a sacred place--
The treasure house of thought.

A happy Mother's Day to all!!

Such a powerful, peaceful picture. The poem evokes soft, hazy memories of snippets of time spent with mom...Sunday nights, our jammies still damp from our bath, curled up on the sofa to watch Disney...a kissed knee when our skates had treated us poorly...comforting arms and a kiss on the forehead when boys were thoughtless...
You are so blessed to have a photographer husband. All of the "Awwww!" pictures in our house are of Amy and her Dad, since I held the camera. I LOVE Jeff's stuff...would love to see more! Now that didn't sound quite right! LOL! Happy Mother's Day, my dear friend...
