Their Fiftieth

Written for:  Poetic Asides April 2017 Challenge  Day 19
Write a memory poem.

Mom, I am thinking about
Eating dinner with family gathered, Dad
Making a toast
On your fiftieth wedding anniversary,
Recalling his words,
You are the gem in my treasure chest.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are in the process of returning to New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
