Threads of Feelings

At dVerse, for Tuesday’s Poetics prompt, Sarah Connor suggested that we write about a love token.  “Maybe you want to think about a token you would leave, or have been left. Maybe there’s something you carry around to remind you of someone you love.”  The larger background that she provided as inspiration was the story of the London Foundling Hospital and the tradition of mothers leaving a token as proof of identity in case they were able to return for their child.

What if what we left behind was a place

 

Threads of Feelings

concentric threads weave

topographic memories

mapped in mind and heart

mountains valleys streams winding

finding bearings that lead home
