senryu : my sister & I

2+

my sister and I
five and three, so little then
wonder what we thought

senryu by M. Nakazato LaFreniere

My sister sounded like she didn’t have this photograph so I went searching through mom’s pictures and found it in a frame.  The surrounding paper had aged, turning tea brown but the photograph hasn’t faded one whit.  Have to say this about black & white, the stuff lasts forever.

1965. We look so serious in that picture.  I wonder what we were thinking.

This pic and poem is to Sis, with love.
