a door forever open wide.
A stillness –
something makes me step inside.
faded sepia groom and bride.
letters in a loving hand.
some forgotten marching band.
soldiers in a foreign land.
lifeless, on a worn-out wicker chair.
a Bible and a Book of Common Prayer.
A hairbrush –
in a veil of silver hair.
billows in the early-evening breeze,
frames a view of verdant summer trees,
A garden –
left behind for butterflies and bees…
