Time Travel--By Brian Whatcott--United States

Time Travel

looking at the camera, smiling,
two kids, it was the strangest thing,
I caught a glimpse of one, the smallest clone
now fifty, looking back on the whole wing-ding...
Mommy gone, Daddy gone, there for a moment, alone
while she somehow gazed back upon the snowy scene
I saw and thought of how it might have been.

Brian Whatcott is a writer from Oklahoma. He and his wife, Norma, have three children. He enjoys flying, sailing and water-skiing.

  3. Brian, looking back does have it's nostalgic moments. I enjoyed your poem. Thank you for sharing it and welcome to Whispers,

  4. Brian, your poem resurrected many wonderful memories for me. There have been occasions when I wished time would stand still. Oh, to have my family once more -- a brother pulling me on a sled, a sister ice skating with me and loving parents who were such a blessing. Beautiful! Have a merry Christmas, Carolyn Devonshire

  5. Nice one, Brian. Thanks for sharing.
