The Flowery Teacup - Poem by Victoria Hughes

A flowery teacup,
Teetering on the edge of reason.
The desk is so full of crap
The poor cup must rest
Amongst trash.

No one notices
As she falls to the floor
No one sees her smash
No one hears her lose her handle
And with it part of herself.

The flowery teacup
Loses all
Among the wreckage
And debris
No one heard her fall
Now in pieces for all to see.

(C) Victoria Elizabeth Hughes

    If a teacup falls in the kitchen and no one notices, has it fallen?
    I wish lots of my teacups would teeter and smash... can't bear to throw the flowery memories out! Thanks, Victoria!
