Photographs in a Box

Black and white
photographs
kept in a
box:
Memories
of yesteryear
that tell a
story
of lives lived
of friendships formed
of love found.
A family's
history
in shades of
black and white
preserved
in a box
for the next
generation.

    Brilliant trickle down. I can't help but think of the past and some awesome black and whites I have seen. Sometimes I wish I knew more about the people.
