I Wonder

by Kate Demeree


I wonder if all the years

the miles, the memories

are now in a safe place

are they marked with a coffee ring

so that you may find them again

I wonder what it is you do

with all of the hours now

Most of all I wonder



Author's Note: Not much, but a start to writing again... maybe

I'm relatively sure all of mine are marked with coffee rings but I doubt seriously they're in a safe place unless they're documented somehow. ;-P

Kate one thing is for sure, you have always been able to capture beauty and solitude in your words. And it doesn't matter how much you write, even if it was one word, I would glean the pure and sheer act of love from that solitary nugget.

My coffee rings shaped themselves into a heart, beautiful as your poetic one, Kate. And I need not wonder if your memories are in a safe place because I know there is space in yours to contain multiple universes. May your day be blessed in all ways. oh and ... Happy Birthday! lovelight&hugs...

As I read your poem...I found myself wondering as well. It's a good thing when words make you think. Lovely poem
