I am so very happy to be presenting another one of my very best friends on my blog. He has a heart of gold and you have heard me refer to him on this blog as Froggie. My daughter has a soft spot for him and his smile, just as I do. He wrote this in free thought a few moments ago and I can’t wait to hear what you guys think!Written by Yousef Kazemi
“How are you doing?”
They all seem to ask.
A pause in their voice.
I hear it. The question. I hear it.
The slightest hesitation in their tone gives a recognized life to an all too familiar subtext.
I see it. I saw him for a moment.
I can navigate the stars I see.
It’s the cloud covered gems that surprise me the most.
A shift in the sky.
The moon – once smiling is full.
A box of memories kept.
Pieces of a life sewn together.
Understanding through needle and thread
and paper – LOTS of paper.
A night passes.
When was this made?
I’m taken aback.
No more questions from the gallery.
Each picture hangs so well.
Face upon face
More than you asked for – a bargain
I’ll save myself next time
And you can be a hero.
She’ll be mine tomorrow.
Tomorrow is a big day…
