Ode to Pictures

Hanging from my wall

familiar faces

smile at me

inviting me to happiness

 

Irreverent to time

tanned young faces

shine

under the Galapagos sun

 

Hypnotizing eyes

tempt me to look inward

silent laughs fill that empty corner

and make me feel the salty taste of the sea

 

Hands become arms, arms become bodies, intertwined

in a huge embrace

a perfect family

​ captured with the click of a camera

 

Happiness is simple

and easily disturbed

the embrace has broken

at least for the time being

 

And sometimes I do not even see

that piece of photographic paper

whispering my name

trying to be remembered

 

But I know

As long as the sun

Rises

and sets

 

As long as

there is a bright moon

lighting up

my night

 

As long as

You are with me

here

and now

 

Then I know

That someday

You will fill my wall again

making me laugh

And cry
