The Table

You may see wood.
You may see grain.
Perhaps you see linoleum,
umbrella in the rain.

This isn’t just a table
where people have gathered.

Food was prepared,
past events mattered.

Easter eggs were colored there.

Thanksgiving was celebrated.

Christmas presents were decorated.

Birthday candles were lit,
then blown to a cloud of memories.

Bills were paid.
Flower arrangements displayed.

Babies were bathed.
Organ music with laughter was made.

One piece of furniture.
Just a piece of wood?

If it had the opportunity,
stories would be told,
if it only could.

For now it sits in silence,
in wait for the next great event.

My Poetry, Photography, and Journals hold treasure from grade school to high school to adult school, which I'm still attending ... just waiting for the final grade. Each layer of life reveals a new truth and with age, it becomes apparent that time is my greatest rival. My hope is to reflect with words and pictures that offer comfort, insight, and wisdom for a life well-lived with peace and tranquility in the end.
