In this free verse poetry, “Brass & Graceful Blooms of Life.”
Even the little things are huge. I had an old brass pail with a handle. I had thrown pieces of myself into it. Pieces that went with time. Pieces laced with tears, love, and memories. Somehow, I just want to hang onto that old brass pail awhile. A free verse poetry and digital art piece of memories.
Brass & Graceful Blooms of Life
It was brass.
A brass catch all for everything.
An old pail discolored with age.
Green pigment stained.
Long in Shape.
But it was more. It held stories.
Stories of where I’d been.
Old keyring—with keys to a house I could
never enter again,
Damn those memories still lived there.
An old dog chain of Harry’s.
He’d died of heart ache when daddy passed.
Poor old soul. I miss his bark down
hallways, chasing a mouse.
An old wooden elk call—still sounds
with daddy’s lips all over it.
Mommy doesn’t have the heart,
to let it go.
Cause there inside that brass pail.
Remains a packet of seeds he gave her.
Labeled: “Graceful Blooms of Life.”
She’s going plant them in a garden
and in my heart.
