That quiet corner


Today a cousin sent a message
that took me deep into my youth
where children ran rebellious and free
in their delicious little roles.
I was transported to another world
years away from where I sit
picking away at the keyboard
as life picks at us..bit by little bit.
I’m flooded with thoughts of people long gone
loved pictures faded and frayed
the memories deepen and gather
into my arms like dark storm clouds
over a brilliant aquamarine sea
as I dive into the depths of silent waters
that quiet corner where the sun streamed in
where I’d gladly relive my life.
