Jewels of memories



memories


She takes out an old album from the closet. Smiling pictures of dear ones, in the album, are the best companion of her loneliness. They stir the reminiscences of happy days of togetherness. They evoke nostalgia and tears roll down her wrinkled cheeks.


Jewels of memories
Treasured in the safe of heart
Shine in solitude

In the photo it looks like she is assuming the same pose as her younger self in the photo - I so resonate with this - it is astonishing how quickly we move from our younger to our older selves!

Kathy said...

Beautiful. Photo albums are such precious things where the shadows of our youth live forever. ♥

This is a real life experience for me as I watch my 86 year old grandma take out all her old albums and look at the old pics...various emotions on her face, as she laughs, cries, gazes at the pics!
Your writing evokes all the nostalgia...
