Family Photo

              by Ralph Fletcher

One last picture
before we head off
in different directions.

One last group of
all of us, smirking,
with rabbit ears.

Three generations,
kids on shoulders,
a baby cousin on my lap.

And in the middle
Grandma and Grandpa
who started all this.

We’re all ripples in a pond
spreading out
from a stone they threw.
