Keepsake Parakeet


As a token of my esteem
in remembrance of the day,
You showed me the color
of the tears.
*
And I, studying the camera
Wearing glasses, thinking:
“I should have done this
earlier.”
*
I don’t have to develop the film
To see the pictures,
Or dig deep
in an album of memory.
*
All is required
Is what one has to revive,
I know where I stand,
Now time to
Let the past buried in sand.

  3. I love this verse:

    I don’t have to develop the film
    To see the pictures,
    Or dig deep
    in an album of memory.
