Photograph

When that sepia-toned

photograph of yesteryears

fell from the moth-eaten diary

of my impetuous youth

the dampness on my cheeks

reminded me of the promise

I had made then.

I am now on a quest

looking for suitable colours

to fill in this tattered photo

to keep old memories fresh

because forgetting is not an option.
