Big Black Purses

Old women,
Big black purses,
They steal memories,
In their big black purses.
Those smells of my grandfather...

I am afraid that his smell
Will disappear within
The big black purses
Ever present
In my heart.

Miss juju,

Excellent.

Those big black purses look silly, I think.

Yo dear Juli,

This is a nice poem in a neat shape.

Do you have anything I might like in that big, black purse.

It's getting around that time of year you know.

Love Bobby

Thank you for your comments everyone.  Thanks Robert for your comment, I thought the image of shop lifting old ladies would amuse you.

Big black purses are like caves...they can hide a multitude of things in the dark recesses.

Hmm, I best take a peak in my own big, black purse and see what treasures may lie within.

This made me laugh, Juju. Everybody knows that whatever they need, I have it in my purse and my friends and family tease me about it...until they need something. This is a clever little poem, I like it.

Hi Juju, I don't see many of the big black purses anymore, you are lucky still to have the memories of your Grandfather, the smells and times, really no one will steal them but time itself, I wish I had some of your memories having never really known my Grandparents, I was born in Australia and they lived in Holland. One day I may meet some of my family over there or maybe not. The black purse gave my muse an open door and a voice to speak Juju, thank you for that. Keep your heart warm and your memories guarded, have a great day my friend.

Rick
