Looking Back and a poem of reflection

Where does the time go?
We didn't even get to enjoy today,
moments and seconds swept away so quickly.

These pictures are evidence that time
must have, at one moment, paused to capture us.
Living life without worries, in those moments of a shutters' wink.

Here images are ageless and joyful.
Our skin, soft and tender.
No intrusions, as of yet...aging.

I find myself smiling though,
happy to know I have a place I can escape to,
a place I can visit and remember what it means to be carefree.

Fantastic presentation though now I fear I may have horrid flashbacks of the clothes I used to wear! The words really accented the pictures, great write.
