The weight of memory

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAShe tossed the salt

Over her shoulder

Not for good luck

But in hopes of

Preserving the moment

    Wonderful poem, Jeannine!

  2. I totally love this, Jeannine!!! On so many levels, not the least of which is my daughter keeps spilling the salt – we live in a tiny condo and currently have three animals and seven humans sharing scant space. We all sit at the table with computers and occasionally plates of food. Whenever we move around, over goes the salt! And do I ever want to preserve these moments . . . Wishing you and your fellas the best week ahead. Peace and joy be yours, Sarah
