Time for a Priorhouse Two for Tuesday Post.
I am featuring chairs today.
Monday’s post for “Delicate” (here) had an image that had a pair of chairs and so I thought I’d show you the other two takes of that shot:
I am joining in with the A&I Poetry Challenge, which is to write a heart poem this month.
(Realistic romantic fiction poem – The heart poem for this post was designed to be written by someone who maybe previously owned some of the chairs in this post. Also, Kiwi Nana (here) recently wrote that her sweetheart was “only eighty-one” and it reminded me about how age is so relative.)
Title: I’m Keeping the Chairs
I’m keeping the chairs.
Letting everything else go.
Except for the boat.
I need that for life flow.
Out of all of our shared possessions, the chairs seemed to speak.
It was where you and I sat – every day, every week.
Eating salads in the sun
Hunkering down after a run
Writing in the shade
Reading newspapers or notes I made
Those chairs carry your many different looks
Didn’t even realize we had a special seated nook
’twas our place to check in
pausing as we fully lived
I will never get used to your being gone.
You were only 81
life was still fun
But your essence, will always live on
In my heart
To have had all those sits with you
completes me through and through
sometimes energized shares
makes me say,
“Oh yes, I am keeping the friggin’ chairs”
And because it is Two for Tuesday, let’s see the poem a second time – in a heart shape (made it here).
