Backyard Memories - Poem by RoseAnn V. Shawiak

Backyard memories sit quietly peaceful,
waiting to be remembered on still dark nights.
A sound, an odor, a familiar scene, bring to mind an
image or picture of a special event.
Gathering together, eating, talking, reminiscing with
relatives of old, enjoying the bond of family.
Ties binding us ever closer, bringing a sense of security,
a calmness wrought within - a sense of belonging.
Special memories of Grandmas, Grandpas, Aunts and Uncles,
gently touch harmonious chords, reverberating through our
brains, focusing in towards each other's hearts,
holding hands throughout the years even though we
are miles apart.
Sanctity of life preserved forever in the sphere of
family - close-knit - dear.
Strings tied beautifully around the circumference of our
collective memories.
