Cherished

by Kelley Morris

 

Forgotten items
Placed in a drawer
Many years ago
Now displayed
On the table
For all to see
Reminders of an
Era long passed
A simpler time
Where a compass
Was a necessity
For any adventure
A photograph
Would be carried
Close to the heart
And where a handful
Of coins was a ticket
To new possibilities
Presented separately
Each item represents
A single moment
Displayed together
They tell the
Story of a lifetime
A time when the
Most simple became
The most cherished

Memories

by Carrie Ann Golden

 

Memories

Are stories that should be shared

Of faces once known

Of places that touched

Every sense and nerve

These snapshots from the past

etched deep in my soul

Even when my mind

No longer recall

I still have the photos

As my visual reminders
