Old photo album

The old fellow
A friend-of-the-family
Flavor of uncle
Recently passed away

Mom and I found
His old photograph book
Fading kodachrome
Captured instants

Who is this, who is that
My mind wanted to know
Some few mom knew
But most of the names were blank

Funny how I needed a name
To make their stories relevant
Rather then let it tell of
the joy and sadness shown

Inspired by this piece from Élan Mudrow, who has been watching my work unfold for some time now.
