Something Lost

By Jean Paul Mazlymian

I was given an old photo

Crinkled and bent with age

Found in a box in the attic

Forgotten in the dark

And lying in the settled dust

Of that old wooden room

It showed a young boy

Unaware

Caught in a fleeting moment

He sat in the grass

Below the bright sun

Smiling at the empty sky
