gently pressed into my palm

sealed with a kiss from smiling lips

sipping light lime beer

between laughs

stories about our past

present promises

prayers for the future


came across them again on the bookshelf

sharing space with Love poems between book covers

similar to sonnets we scribe between sheets

eloquence embraces when you reach for my hand

gently press into my palm

tiny timeless treasured tokens

Poetry Prompt:
Identify something in your surroundings—a rusted hoe draped in spider webs, an unfashionable dress abandoned by time, a wine cork buried in a drawer of unpaid bills—and write a poem that appreciates these lonely items.
