loureedraven2Precious are the elongations of memory
snipping at reality for tidbits
they hunger to define in sandwiched package
the yawn of years gone before
whether accurate or without merit
their lingering retains the outline of past
whimsical to those who know death lingers
around some foresaid door
give them no heed if baseless they expect
your devotion and belief
what we recall is not always the delight
or squalor of things past but of effort made
to put sense in formation
let it take flight and show us
why then we made no mystery
of our repulsion and our ardor

  1. This hit me deep dear Candice:
    “the yawn of years gone before
    whether accurate or without merit
    their lingering retains the outline of past”
    you truly are the best of the best.

  2. Did you mean to write “tit-bits” instead of “tidbits”?
    Changes the angle of my focus.
    You write: “what we recall is not always the delight – or squalor of things past but of effort made”
    and this makes me internalize what you are saying.

    P.S. you disappeared on me. Glad to see you are back.

    1. Hello my friend Larry, I hope you are doing well! I am back to WP thank you for reading me again and noticing the ‘tit-bits’ sometimes I miss things and appreciate the heads-up! I agree, the best is when we internalize what someone is writing rather than glance at it and move on. You honor me my friend in reading me. Thank you and happy new year!
