It Has Always Been Books

Today’s OctPoWriMo prompt suggested we write about a favourite childhood toy. So here goes . . . 

IMG_8981Curled up at your side
Feet dangling over the edge of the couch
Just barely
We crawl inside the story
Together
That’s the best place to be

Mom
I miss you
And would love to read
The book I co-wrote
Together

One day
One day we’ll be
Together
Again
Forever

I will be posting two poems today, tomorrow, and Tuesday in order to keep to the 31 poems in 31 days. (I will be out of town W-F and incommunicado.) 

Book and Lilacs

Beautiful books
Our shared experiences
Our memories
Kept safe
Secure

All my days
Never forgetting
Drifting back

Measuring days gone by
Our past
Remembering books, remembering you
Evermore

Blessed childhood
Our time together
Our connection
Kept safe
Secure
