An old man reflects upon his childhood…
Some few favored things have endured his life.
He holds a gaudy Japan vase with care
That he can still see through his boyish sight.
A three-legged iron kettle hangs in display
That once his father used for popping corn,
And his great-grandmother used for farms’ supper.
Its’ value lost in time and in memory.
Vase, pot, some photos, and scraps of paper,
More value perhaps than his dead body-
And certainly easier to remove!
He places them back on the shelf….”later”.
Come on in to give and receive critique, suggestions or help with work in progress or finished pieces. Any format welcome.
