Inspiration of the Week 9

Welcome to The poetry Palace and "Inspiration of the week". There are so much talent wthin the blogsphere and this week I have visited a blog that I am sure will inspire the others talented poets. I am Chimnese and it's a pleasure to be with you.



Creative Memories
By
She takes scissors and glue to her past
Memories can be recast
A picture here, a picture there
A collage of images hazy and fair.
Creating memories page by page
Erasing the pain, replacing the rage
The friend who betrayed her is once again true
By deft rearranging, old boyfriends are too.
A friendship that died from a hurtful word
Now vibrant with laughter that can almost be heard
Photoshop fixes the postpartum blues
A glowing new mother she'll carefully choose.
She's tired of memories less than ideal
She'll trash scraps of life that don't hold appeal
Forgetting the parts she wants to conceal
Her scrapbook life will become what is real.


Please Prepare to Join Thursday Poets Rally week 59, 


next Wednesday, 10am, on the 28th of December!
