If I Could Paint: Limestone Walls, Porch Chairs & Tamed Memories

As a child,

Sitting beside a surreal stream.
The Man in White, smiling,
promising to me.

As a man,

The brightness not so intrusive,
A spindly comfortable porch chair
against a tall limestone wall

Still a promise.

The broken memories not so sharp
as they once were,
The joy of them returned.


Three empty chairs,
beside the one,
and I smile, waiting.
