Long Gone (Skittles) #atozchallenge #poetry


L

i found one piece

colored in memories

touching my fingertips

*

i hear unstoppable giggles

colored in memories

and silly moments

*

 i grasp all that is left

colored in memories

touching my heart

*

i remember candy coated silliness

colored in memories

and boys…

Skittles

This is written for friend and colleague Brian Miller and the boys that keep us young.

A2Z-BADGE-000 [2014]

Light Verse are whimsical poems  are represented in Limerick, non-sense poems and  Double Dactly.  (the above  is more a free verse)

This is a Limerick-

I met a strange man from Philly

Who everyone said was quite silly

he pulled up a dish, it was covered in fish

and pulled up a chair with fine Lily

***

There is no grief like the grief that does not speak

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Look not mournfully into the past, it comes not back again.

Wisely improve the present , it is thine. Go forth to meet the shadowy future without fear…

~Longfellow
