A Dock Street Visitr by Davis Morton

A DOCK STREET VISIT / 2020 / oil on canvas / 24" x 24" ... Read a painting comment below...

What would I ask my Father if I could

Or my Great Great Grandfather

Who also had our name

How deep does family go?

Could I be the spitting image of an ancient Uncle

Whose name has been forgotten

Or of someone else who lived 1000 years ago

Like faint reflections on a window walking by

Who were these people

Whose DNA and genes were used creating me

And what else did I inherit?

Can traits and talents really be passed on?

And do all my thoughts and dreams

Just belong to me?

Or am I just the latest layer

Of the being I have always been?
