The grainy monochromatic photograph

A fading red heart on a

Dusty cover page of an

Album bound with memories of

People holding hands, and of

Eyes perhaps happier than

Those staring at them, because

Sepia tones and tattered corners,

Black and white and worn out borders,

have eyes that smiled at each other, not

Those that smiled at cameras, for

Pictures cannot just wait to say,

How fast that ‘one day ‘ can drift away.

    So evocative of the emotions stirred by looking at an old photograph. Well done!
    many thanks for following my blog.
    Best wishes, Pete.
    (Just a thought. I would suggest that you remove your (very young) age from the profile. There are some strange people online)
