Reminiscing

A silent vestibule 

Filled with smells

Faded flowers

And wedding bells

A yearbook with comments 

From once~teenaged strangers,

Isolated warnings of long~ago dangers.

Promises and hearts

Forever broken

Words that might never 

Have been spoken.

Fragments of homework, 

Prayers and verse

A bygone Raccolta 

Of blessing and curse. 

Here is the MONDAY POETRY PROMPT .  We have a new poet laureate for the U.S. , Joy Harjo
