Bone of my bones

Bone of my bones is a reflection for Sunday, January 23, 2011.

Bone of my bones

Bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh….
Genesis 2:23

It is in the shelter of each other that the people live.
– Irish Proverb

We do not remember days, we remember moments.
– Cesare Pavese

Reflection

Everything Norman Rockwell ever needed for his illustrations
is in this simple photo. And who among us
couldn’t fill a shoebox full of these?

This twig at three and growing,
sheltered momentarily,
follows what sparkles
and remembers more deeply
way into the bones.

Note:

Bone of my bone of course comes from the Old Testament, but I was inspired to use it within a reflection after coming across it in the now classic book of The Family of Man. It’s an amazing photo documentary by Editor  Edward Steichen.
