✩Yesterday’s Tomorrows

Patient is the air

For inhalation is sweet

Thick with Summer’s warmth

Amber drenched moments

Remain encapsulated

As memories

Of happiness

Of innocent days

When time was allowed

To fluidly flow

Without urgency

Or guilt

See shadows playing

In shafts of sunlight

Illuminating the beauty

Of innocent smiles

Freckled noses

And crooked teeth

Yesterday’s tomorrows

Captured like ‘Box-Brownie’ memories

Distant thoughts

Recalled in sepia tone

Stored like spices

In air-tight jars
