Basket of old photographs – small stone 5

Catch-all repository of random memories.
Fallen from albums, bits of sticky cling to the backs.
Stuffed in anyhow, simply to preserve existence.
Some dated, some not. Blurred unrecognisable landscapes,
out of focus faces, too dark interiors.
Sunny scenes trigger “ooh, that was when…!”
Smiling faces, some long buried now;
others more recent, the missing is raw.
Emotionally drained by looking,
I return them to the basket,
leaving the sorting for another day.
