Snap shots


To the floor

Of a long time before

Each one carrying

A little story

To be told

Some of love

Some of regret

Some of just memories

Captured in stillness

All the people

Places and things

In these photos

Were of a time

That has passed

Somewhere forgotten

Put to rest

As I look through

Joy fills my heart

Of everything that used to be

All the lessons

All the loves

All the beautiful and exotic places

Filled with love

My heart gets so large

It feels like it will burst

Into the universe

Among the star dust

Moments of your life laid out like playing cards before you. The nostalgic reminiscence of times and places beckoning us to drift over the pages of our lives. Nicely written.

well there is a lot of 'star dust' in your writing because you were born to write and I always find 'special little snapshots' in all of your poetry - and some people go through an entire lifetime trying to convey what you have done so well and so purely through your legacy here at the Hub - lake erie time ontario canada 9:01am
