An old vintage photograph lies
hidden beneath dusty antiques
today but a mere memory
of yesterdays long forgotten.
She sees herself in that face
those soft, supple features
almond eyes, bushy brows
full lips begging for amour.
How can mere pennies
buy a priceless story
who once had
Prompt inspiration: Magpie Monday
mere pennies can be all we are worth in the end......it's the life you live that is priceless
oooooooooooooh, i like this one.
and thanks for your comment, by the way.
Very nice...love this one.
"...mere pennies...priceless story." It's sad, but true.
Priceless are the tales of our days, yet for what price do we endure it all? And to whom do we bequeath the significant moments in time?
A priceless story. One never knows what comes right around the corner.
An imaginative piece.
You ask a profound question and answer it perfectly!
A few carefully-chosen words, saying so very much. Well done.

Well-crafted life story!
somebody care enough to frame her ...
Very thoughtful take on the Mag
it's not the frozen image but the life led that is priceless.
... she sees herself ... someone who once had everything...! Wow, leaves so many questions, but the overall message is treasure what you have. Thanks.
A poem as lovely as the photo. I too approached the poem from seeing aspects of myself in her [albeit not physical resemblance;)]
"She sees herself in that face"..we all have more in common than not..as you showed us so well!
Thanks... I love how everyone comes up with such different (some similar) takes on Magpie Monday!
There is definitely a feeling of times past in the picture and the poem.
How indeed! Priceless poem. Thank you.
This is simply lovely =)
wow, i like that! very intriguing use of the prompt and you touch on a deep subject. excellent magpie.
We all have a priceless story that must be preserved.
She certainly had a kind of beauty.
