Poem

Inspired by this image.


Grandma's Depression #1

The bobbins still
lined up in
their box, kept
safe, still lustrous
though unused
for ten years,
since the
arthritis
overwhelmed her hands.

Whew.

Very touching for me. And the word "lustrous" just leaps out...very nice.

Thank you so much for your kind words and support.
