CHILDHOOD PHOTOGRAPHS

still-life-brownie-camera-vintage-photographs-antique-chair_5299I hold you in my hands,
I am with you for an instant,
Back then when these pictures were taken,
Back where they were taken,

There is so much I would like to ask you,
What was it that made you smile ?
How tight was your daddy holding you in his arms?
What powers would your magic wand give you?

But I dare not ask,
I am just happy to be with you,
To listen to this beautiful silence,
Invigorating us of its presence,

I am just happy to know all that,
Your frozen memories wish to share,
Holding on ever so tight,
To your childhood photographs

  1. Such a pure and innocent article about such a pure feeling. No love affair or tussle with life or tales of voyage and yet it turns out to be such a deep and powerful post, because it holds our most unadulterated and pure emotions. The world is kind you to when you’re a child and everything seems so happy(makes me sad to think about those kids who even as a child see hardships)
    Loved every bit, I read your posts and they feel like someone is telling me meaningful and beautiful bedtime stories.
    The picture❤😄, you’re so talented Belle😄

    1. I am blushing, you are so kind Twinklingwords. I am so very happy you enjoyed this, you have no idea. I am trying something new, using my pictures as writing prompts. My spontaneous writing has been in hiding lately. This is my very first attempt at it, so it’s really cool that it made you feel this way. You are so right, childhood should be pure, innocent and beautiful but most often than not even childhood can’t be exactly that. Talking about childhood makes me think about little Emma, I hope she is ok ❤

      1. I understand your plight yo! Writing can be tricky sometimes in spontaneous and feeling based work. Never mind, this is definitely working, keep going😄❤and your perfection makes me feel like you’re a professional photographer!
        And Emma is I don’t know where! Have no idea when she would want me to be in her world. Umm tbh! I want to make it short and awesome and content is also confusing! So let’s see😁😀

        1. Thank you so much Twinklingwords for your encouragement; I very much appreciate it and I am so glad you think it works. Thank you so much about my photography too, so happy you like it ❤ Yours is most beautiful too, I can’t wait to see your photography page growing :0)
          I hope I didn't put any pressure on you with Emma, it wasn't my intention. She must be in hiding for now, she will come eventually, I am sure she will. But you sure need not worry for I am sure it will be awesome ❤

    1. Thank you so very much Mihirtrada; I am ever so pleased you could feel this way reading it. I am so happy you think this line is magic, it means a lot to me. I do love the sound of silence. I do spend lot of time in solitude but silence isn’t always there, the mind loves to chat and I always very much enjoy when silence shows its nose and tags along a little while. Thank you so much for introducing me to your blog as well :0)

      1. You are always welcomed belle.. in fact, pleasure is all mine as I’m avidly serching for some persons who can feel the power of silence and live in their dreams among the hustle and bustle of daily life. And what can be more exciting than to see a person who writes with all her heart !!? Have a nice day ahead.. 😄

        1. Thank you so much for your kindness. This is so really cool; I am too utterly delighted to have met a fellow writer who treasures silence as well, its pretty awesome. Silence is very central to my being. I wish to photograph it somehow, when I can figure how :0) It is so lovely to meet a poet and dreamer :0) Have a beautiful day too 🙂
