walls colored an ordinary beige
heirlooms, pictures, things ....
memories not mine
here in this foreign room
I quickly take it in
as I paint a picture of my family here
socked feet sliding on hardwood floors
colors..... ruby red, rich chocolate brown, creamy white
lazy winter days curled up under soft blankets lost in a good book
the laughter of my children
bouncing off the walls and into my heart
memories to carry with me always
I can see it ......
