Bittersweet Cellulloid


Photo from Digital Retouch

Old movies flicker
with faces from the past.
Without these images who would known that their names would last.

Tear filled eyes overwhelmed with the vision
of fuzzy faced memories now in focus of their living.

The lives that they lived and the people they met,
seem to have faded away like yellowed newspapers.
Yet, here they are remembered in a technicolor DVD dream.

Antiques of humanity, driving beautiful old cars
look so enchanting in their everyday wars.

Playing with children and cutting homemade wedding cakes.
Looking at these flashes of their lives makes me wonder what impact ours will make.
