So many of them
posted on our refrigerator —
snap shots, some with curled edges
hung up there with various little magnets
which keep portions of our history
from falling to the kitchen floor —
reminders of the past —
many of friends who long ago or recently
left our troubled world too soon.
Those pictures aren’t consulted every day
but are pointed to
when certain friends come by
and show an interest in this display.
We are most pleased to share
these connections to our past.
And some of those who look today
may become looked at tomorrow —
will join our panoply of photographs
attached to doors we open every day.
