Drawers

25 Feb

Our assignment:

Your prompt: drawer

Today’s form: ode

 

_______________________

Inside my mind a chest of drawers

with treasures found within

like lady’s linen handkerchiefs

well-worn and dearly loved

the lingering scent of her perfume

her laugh like summer rain

the memory of her warm embrace

that brings my heart such pain

I keep her under lock and key

where she is safe from harm

and though our visit bittersweet

I’ll always love my Mom
