These Photographs


These photographs
unheard stories
If they held voice
what words would be whispered

Faded-torn at the edges
these photographs
lay in silence

Reminders of yesterdays gone
moments captured
somehow almost forgotten

Peaceful
and yet so emotionally strong
enough to still demand tears

These photographs
unheard stories
If they held voice
what words would be whispered...

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
