Memories

At times

Memories surface

Arising from a sight,

Sound or smell, and “Remember when…”

We say

Cinquain

I just took an online class to create this “Laundry Day” collage and it sure did cause me to recall many memories of the times spent hanging clothes out on a clothesline when growing up in the 50’s in Illinois.

Full of lofty goals

I soar higher than the stars

Music in my soul

Catapulting me forward

Until I reach a million dreams

(I was inspired to write this poem after listening to “A Million Dreams” Song from the movie “The Greatest Showman” and I added it to a paper collage piece I was working on that the song also inspired me to create😩)
