Happy 60th Anniversary to Mama and Papa Giacalone

Filed under: Haiku or Senryu,q.s. quickies — David Giacalone @ 3:05 pm

…. September 13, 1947

Without a doubt, the very best thing about having your parents celebrating their 60th Wedding Anniversary is having your parents here to celebrate that amazing marital milestone. [but see] Yes, I’m blessed. Indeed, my siblings and I, and all the descendents, friends and loved ones of Arthur P. and Connie M. Giacalone are blessed to be able to raise our voices to them with love, gratitude and affection, and with warmest wishes for more of the happiest and healthiest possible times together.

Elsewhere at this webiste, I have posted Art & Connie Giacalone: the first 60 years (Sept. 13, 2007). It’s a display of about two dozens photographs that span their married/family life. It includes larger renditions of the photos used in this posting.

Rather than attempt to find the words that are in my heart about my Mother and Father, I’m going to let some of our Honored Guest haiku poets give a little insight on their own perspectives of love, marriage, family, etc.

counting the couples
who’ve since split up

honeymoon night
the suite’s acoustics
amplify her snores

to offer the newlyweds
