The Mag - 121/OSI 224

Still Life, 1670, detail by Jean François de Le Motte
a small treasure found
tucked away
among the debris   
of what once was
shinning brightly...
beckoning
longing to be remembered...
and loved once again

  5. Smiles…I am glad that among the debris of what once was there are a few treasures…and perhaps a few things worth rekindling…

  6. It is amazing how lives can reduce to a few papers, mostly lost among debris. And yet these were people who loved and were loved. Your poem caught that perfectly.

  8. Once was and now wants to be again.

    'longing to be remembered...
    and loved once again
    '
    No trouble here with the remembered
    but to be loved again could get to be a tall order. :)
    Very nice poem, Karen.
    And a wonderful take on the prompt, wanting. Thank you.
