True for every generation, age takes from us what ever we inherit and gives us what we earn; your shelves, my shelves, the entire cabinet of our character. What a ponderous verse, Chris. Thanks.

Solid symbolism. Indeed we are made up of those "memories". Greg's comments very germaine.

...chris, quite a sweet w/ real life love and compassion...this touches that lil' unameable feeling that we get from 'belonging' to a good memory and you posit more are coming, quite, quite...a slice of life's meaning in this one, mebubba.

this is a perfectly rounded piece, from the first line to the last (which works so well to tie it all up right and tight) -- I agree with the "solid symbolism" comment -- that really says all that you've captured here. I'm putting this on my shelf :)

a sweet, loving tribute to all those who've touched and arranged you, and you them, on the shelves of your lives...

I also love the symbolism here - well developed, a solid place to visit from time to time. Thank you.
