Picture Perfect

thoughts drift back to us
the happy times laughter filled
smiling blue eyes sparkling, mischievous,
the tickle of your beard 
but that was long ago

I found our pictures
hidden face down, buried,
beneath bits of memory
small gifts of love

there was love
short-lived, brilliant
blossoming unexpectedly again

aged love
banked fires

    Debbie Pictures can bring back so many feelings and memories from our past. Sometimes bad, hopefully more good. I can feel the emotion pouring out of you. Nice job

    gosh, Deb. I am just swamped with work these days. If I rewrote that poem, I would have to change so many things about it!! I hope you are not too disappointed with the original. At least I did not name him!!
