Note: In 1979, China imposed a one-child family policy. For Chinese, having a son means carrying on the name of the family. Women would try their best to have a son. On October 29, 2015, it was reported that the existing law would be changed to a two-child policy, but it didn’t reverse the impact of the previous 35 years.

The words for this Weekly Tanka Prompt Challenge are “Portrait & Lady.”
I used to live in Alhambra, California, a city close to Huntington Library in San Marino, California. During those days, there was no admission fee. A minimal fee per car was required as a donation. I made frequent visit to the Library. The Huntington is situated on approximately 120 acres of land with Botanical Garden, Library, and Art Collections. The portrait of Sarah Barrett Moulton: Pinkie is a permanent collection of the Huntington. Hanging opposite to Pinkie is The Blue Boy by Thomas Gainsborough.
I have both prints hanging in my living room.
