Sifting through old photos

reflecting on the past, 

I found you again.

From beyond the pages,

you smiled back

as I traced the outline

of your face 

and wiped the tears 

from mine. 

Vessars 1972

The Vessar’s celebrating my birthday in December 1972. The film was developed in January 1973. Remember when you had to wait to see your pictures?!
