What thought does the photograph evoke in the poet now, quite contrary to what it did when her mother was alive?


The poet is moved by the photograph because it depicts her mother's childhood. It had been captured by her mother's uncle while she and her cousins were having fun at the beach. Her eyes well up with tears as she looks at the photograph. The poet is brought back to memories of her mother's stories about her 12-year-old self on vacation at the beach when she sees her mother's photo. Her mother used to laugh and be happy, and now that her mother is dead, she really misses that.
