10 years remembered please read!


Imagine a place
Where old dusty comic books
Can seem like an undiscovered
Treasure
In a room where the sun rises
Just for me
On the stage of a bay window
Illuminating one hundred acres
Best seen through
Toes
Trailing in the grass
On the back of an old tractor
Driven by an old man
With false teeth
Kept in a Santa Claus
Cup
Which smells of Marlboro
Mixed with air freshener and
Dust
On old stairs leading
Down to the kitchen filled
With iced tea and
Baked ham
Eaten with fresh tomatoes and
Home grown potatoes
Next to the shelter door
Which we should never
Ever
Go near.

~ Angela Erin Burke ~

We all have a place like you describe Saxoness... some exist only in our minds, others are lucky enough to be able to experience them in real life.... yours sounds heavenly....

Grin ... you've just captured this tomboy's childhood in 500 words or less ... what a delightful memory ...
