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 the Book of Common Prayer,
and a hairbrush –
in a veil of silver hair.
billows in the soft, unfettered breeze.
frames a scene of verdant summer trees.
A garden –
left behind for butterflies and bees…
