Learn From the Past #americana #microfiction #poetry

We can learn so much from history and those who forged their way through it…

White wash will cover

mute it away

hide the reminder

agedness and decay

*

 an old wizened face

 all knowing eyes

there is life and history

no paint can disguise

**

more things than saw

behind the facade

a life, a story

so much had gone on

*

if you try to separate

life from this place

you will miss what has happened

it will be a disgrace

*

for when it was young

a beauty you’d see

a family, animals

 life-giving trees

*

Now listen and learn

from vine-covered wood

a tale, antiquity

where history stoically stood

Check out  the group of  Micro-Fiction writers at Friday Fictioners and the wonderful weekly picture prompts like this fantastic barn shot!

Honey Where Are You? (Flash Fiction#Alzheimers)

I looked today

turned around

What did you say

Did you make a sound

“Honey I love you”

I heard her say

With all we’d been through

My memories at times seem so far away

************************************

After speaking with a dear friend whose wife is captive in Alzheimer’s, I was inspired to write this Fiction for him, for her

Thanks to Monkey Man who weekly hosts our flash fiction in 160.  Amazing what people can do with a few words. Join us

Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before. - Edgar Allan Poe
