Granddad Art II blogGranddad with New Born Granddaughter, Katelyn (September 24, 2003) 

I was going through my photo archives today and updated the first photo with Katelyn.

Make me an angel
My grandchild bundle of joy
I held her up close.

Two moments,
captured in time
each a generation apart
father and daughter
creating a new reality
a moment in time.

Granddaughter Katelyn and son Kenne David left this morning, returning to Houston after four-plus days here in Tucson. This was their second visit after three years. We made an effort to do as much as possible in the desert summer and the beginning of the monsoon season, which began while they were here.

Photos of Katelyn and poetry about her have been part of several posting over the last ten years — she will be eleven this September. Here’s one of the poems:

The Eyes Tell You

Little girls have a mysterious power,
But not all can feel it – when she does,
You can see it in her eyes.

As she matures, she is driven
To climb the tower of perfection,
Always resisting her own indifference.

Her enigmatic power is needed
To stir the artist inside,
To triumph over the unenlightened.

In her own way, she will find something new,
Something never before encountered
Placing art in a world void of feeling.

Inventive, she will act,
Sometimes seeking out failure
In order to turn it into a triumph.

Once her power is transformed
By the magical virtue of art,
Loving and understanding becomes simpler.

# # # # #

Now that they return home, I ponder —

Children and grandchildren

are the beautiful mysteries

that drive our emotions 

stirring each moment we share,

not knowing if the same emotions

transcend each communication in the moment,

ending in emotional question marks.

The Eyes Tell You

Little girls have a mysterious power,
But not all can feel it – when she does,
You can see it in her eyes.

As she matures, she is driven
To climb the tower of perfection,
Always resisting her own indifference.

Her enigmatic power is needed
To stir the artist inside,
To triumph over the unenlightened.

In her own way, she will find something new,
Something never before encountered
Placing art in a world void of feeling.

Inventive, she will act,
Sometimes seeking out failure
In order to turn it into a triumph.

Once her power is transformed
By the magical virtue of art,
Loving and understanding becomes simpler.

Even though Katelyn is only 45 minutes from us, we don’t get to see her that often, so this time I had the camera ready.  Click here to see slide show.
