    'Old Braided Rug'


    I found an old hand made braided rug
    at a thrifty store, the other day.
    It was quite a dirty sight to see
    with some of its edges frayde.

    I bought it up and rushed it home!
    to give this little rug, a gentle loving needed bath.
    And when it was cleaned, there was seen
    braided memories of someone's past.

    One braided rope weaved into another
    a child's pajamas or maybe a robe?
    Then an old flour bag, 'Velvet Flour'
    was the logo, in this rug they'd sewed.

    Then what looked to be a small center piece
    remnants of someone's wedding gown.
    I think they placed it there on purpose
    Sort of like this little rugs, jeweled crown.

    Memories of someone's life
    braided into this useful little rug.
    To place in front of a sink or bed
    giving where ever placed, a little braided hug.

    I don't know if anyone still makes them
    these journals of a persons past?
    But this little braided rug is now mine to treasure
    to be enjoyed as long as it will last.

    A tip to rhyme in poetry is to go through all the letter to finding a word ryhiming.
    Example:
    I don't know why I used a TRADE,
    Now my memories seem to FADE.

    I think a train of thought can be rhythmic itself, so we shouldn't over exert on rhyming as it loses the true essence of a poem... Having said that many masters have crafted such masterpiece poems that have everything what is required technically and nothing is lost…

    I am not a master just a learner… so if any one would please read few of my poems and guide me to get better in this learning process…

    Regards,
