Little Chest of Memories

It’s time again for the fabulous Friday Fictioneers. A 100 word photo prompt hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields, who has also provided the photo this week.


If memories were little things, that you and I could touch,

I’d build a case to put them in and fill up every box.

Little bits of this and that and souvenirs and such,

Every one a stepping stone or a cherished building block.

Cycle rides and party games, monopoly and tiles.

Driving tips and theatre trips and TV shows and boys,

Shells that sing of seas you swam, and all those blessed smiles.

Every one a part of you and I’d see them through your eyes.

If memories were little things that you and I could touch.

  1. Loving this, good skills!
    When I looked at the photo this week I thought about doing a poem but now I’m not sure I want to bother after reading this great post. Damn you! ; )

  2. For only writing poetry a week you certainly have a natural gift for rhythm. There were a couple of forced rhymes, but hey, Dr. Seuss made words up to make shit rhyme, darling, so no worries! Quite lovely, Helen.
