poetry

a few shiny pennies

if we could cobble together
a few shiny pennies
a few sunny days
a few smiles

without fear
of tears

a few laughs
perhaps

without thinking
on when
and how
and why
the laughter
might end

we’d be alright

everything–
would be alright
again

    1. That’s interesting.. I’d never heard that. In my family there are a lot of stories about spirits visiting, but I’ve never had the experience in the way others described it. I’ve found a few pennies tho 😉
