Love the image of backyards of the mind! Very nice piece!
That was wonderful, thank you for posting!
And were is the picture of Jake in a tie?No seriously, this was beautiful. Something about chiseling makes me shiver...
I reread the poem many times, Alexis. It is just as you say - memory is fickle and fleeting, unfortunately rarely perfect!
Alexis,I enjoyed your saunter down the lane of memories and in particular the reminder of how old memories come, unbidden, from the shrubbery along the path.Nice flow and great magpie.rel
great imagry.. I like the "tainted tax returns"
i too love the "tainted tax returns" adn the form your poem takes like fragments of thought.
You are very talented...I love the direction you went with it, and the beautiful imagery! :-)
You are gifted. Thanks for the beautiful word picture!
"memories speaking trails like little footprints in the backyards of mind"I love the begining!! The whole poem is beautiful but the start is my favorite part. The images that the initial line brings to my mind are priceless.
This is quite the lovely Magpie .......
I love it.especially the lines. . ."memoriesspeaking trailslike little footprintsin the backyards of mind". . . just wonderful!
A wonderful post and it's so true....tainted (and new) tax returns ARE somethings better left forgotten!!
I love your way with words!
like paintings in the attic... beautiful.
That last stanza does it for me: it brings it all together very powerfully. The poem improves with each reading.
Beautiful! You have a way with words!
