In Shades of Black and White

In so many shades of black and white, I find you after all these years;
leaning against that old weathered clapboard schoolhouse,
high on the hill overlooking the Fundy Bay, 
and again, I inhale the fragrance of those wild sea salt roses
and feel the ocean mist upon my face, as I look out at those 
sunbeams dancing on the tops of those rolling waves.

There you are, in your hand-me-down dress,
with socks pooling around the tops of your shoes.
There, third row to the far left, sporting a home made bowl haircut,
and a smile of utter joy. 

After all years, in so many shades of black and white,
 I find that little lost girl, and I am a kid again.

In so many shades of black white, I find the true colors that are me.

Authors Note:
I wanted to enter this in the contest, but it was too late.

The inspiration behind this prose, comes from a snapshot 
taken 61 years ago, which somehow made its way back to me via 
a realitive and the modern miracle of facebook.

    I like everything about the poem Elaine, if only it was that easy for me to discover these shades. I see, somewhat grey ... This is deep... Thank you also for sharing the bottom note. It's amazing how far a reminder can go... Linda

    You might just imagine how this poem is "my kind" of poetry! It speaks to my heart, with such a lovely, however melancholy and nostalgic it tends to be, .....one that reaches out and touches those places deep inside. So happy to see you are writing here again! I've missed seeing your writes !!

    The imagery is well suited for the ambiance that the author has created throughout this piece, one of rediscovering yourself through pleasant personal memories of the past. Emile. #7
