childhood

jillysygirl has posted a childhood challenge
with very few guidelines or parameters.
my long term scanning project unearthed images
of me that i can only relate to as a stranger.


i do not remember being
this child, having this
photograph taken.
i cannot recall the peasant blouse.

they are decidedly my eyes
looking out from that
tilted face, my younger,
fuller lips.
yet whatever else i
could say
would be fiction.

  1. i have a few photos of my younger self where i think the same thing...or if i think i'm actually remembering, it's only because my mother has told me the story that goes with the photo....but i don't really have it lodged as a memory.
