    The poem A Photograph is written in the memory of poet’s mother who goes into reminiscence after seeing an old photo framed in cardboard. In the photo, there are three people, poet’s mother and two of her cousins who are holding poet’s mother’s hands. The photo was taken when poet’s mother was 12 years old.

    The poet then memorises how her mother laughed seeing her photo of her youth. But deep inside, she was sad because her youth was gone. Now, in the present, the poet’s mother is no more and she is remembering her (mother’s) laugh and missing her.

    So the whole poet is about loss and grief because of it. Both poet and her mother laugh because of their old memories. But ironically both are sad because they have lost something.
