Reflective perspective

Glass doorknobs on bedroom doors with key locks
big green worms on tomato plants
a dime in hand for the newest "Uncle Scrooge" comic book
playing cards clipped on bike wheels with wooden clothes pins
the nurse in white with pins on her chest taking temperature with a glass thermometer tasting of alcohol
wild blackberry feasts in the back lot
the smell of blooming basswood trees
forts made with old chenille bedspreads and clothesline props
and just watching rain
Childhood excitements and Old man’s treasures
Little things that hold on to you and pull you back from today
Like sleep they renew
reflective perspective
