Photo Album

In that old photo
your face is lowered
to the book
as you read;
candid and smooth
as the page.

And in this one
you had the sun
in your eyes;
but to me, the sun
was always in
your eyes.

      Thank Maryse. This one is a short poem with two verses rather than a haiku. I have submitted it for publication and am hopeful.
