The Power of a Photograph

Power of a Photograph

B.J. Silberman

Old photograph,

A form of visual poetry –

In an unrehearsed dance between black and white.

If you can listen with your eyes,

The story hides in the shadows.

Where tricks of light

Make the obvious invisible,

Give substance to memory,

And place time in the palm of your hand.
