Faded background, long ringlet curls:
sign of the times from yesteryear.
The worn faces of seven girls
wearing vague smiles, mostly austere.
Updated background, tattoos and swirls:
sign of the times from modern day.
Made-up faces of seven girls:
wholly different kind of display.
Times have changed; and this resonates. It’s true…
each photograph could capture me or you.
Notes: The prompt from Sepia Saturday was to either use their vintage photograph (a marvelous one which I still might use!) or use one of our own. Inspired by some of the work of Bob Scotney, I decided to do a contrast(ish) poem, using an old and a new photograph which I paired with the poetic form Sonnetina Tre.
Thanks for visiting. My wish for tonight? Stay dry, warm and safe.
