Old Photo

Who is that boy in the photo?
Just twelve months old
In a home unrecognized
An unfamiliar father
A beloved mother
Aunts and an uncle unseen in years

I stare at the photo in wonder
as connection between now and then
is a dotted line
that followed hard curves
And the Dad I remember
had a different name and face

Who would that boy be today
if that past
had become my present
and time had unraveled
according to a different weave
within the pattern of destiny?
