Looking at Pictures to Be Put Away

by Gary Snyder

"Who was this girl
In her white night gown
Clutching a pair of jeans

On a foggy redwood deck.
She looks up at me tender,
Calm, surprised,

What will we remember
Bodied thick with food and lovers
After twenty years."

Looking at pictures is sometimes sad because you know that that moment will never happen again.
