What Image

How do,
Or do
The words
Picture?
Is there
An image 
Or a new 
Or old 
Photograph
In front of
Your eyes,
Or is this
One you
Hear 
Only 
And alone.

A story
Told that 
Brings no
Other thing 
To mind.
Could it be
The sounds
Themselves
That bring 
You pause
Or evoke
Deep from
Your own 
Memories
Some…
Thing
One 
Place
Time?
