Photographs

She longed to keep the small pieces of Creation with her
To keep her warm when the days were cold
To keep her company when she was old
So she took a photograph with her eyes
And developed it in her heart.

Some are blurry, some are clear as glass
Some she lost, some she was given
But she always keeps them in the little box.
Locked up tight
For when the days are cold
For when she is old.

my cheesy 70s movie edit.

  3. Oh my goodness! This was so good!:) I loved the two lines- So she took a photograph with her eyes
