They were old…

They were old…

They passed me on the street,
engulfed and almost hidden among the mass of people…

They were old and small…
But they did not seem to care…

They had just enough
taking care of them both…

They were old

  1. How lucky they are to have each other – old and alone, and invisible in our modern western society must be so lonely. Gorgeous shot Ilargie – no similarities with my parents, really, except great age (98/92) but that’s who I immediately thought of.

  2. Reblogged this on A Word in Your Ear and commented:

  3. Me encanta esta foto. Me recuerda de un viejo que vi, hace muchos anos, en Florencia.

    El viejo con su viejo baston cruzaban la plaza jorobada. Los tres estaban jorobados; el viejo, el baston, y la plaza. El viejo ambulaba lentamente. El baston caia entre los empedrados y creia que no encontraba el piso. Mas nunca me olvidare ese viejo. Gracias.

    • 🙂 I would like to think it will only depend on us… Our wife, our husband, our brother, our last friend…The question is to have somebody to care and that will take care of us…
