Memories – November 2014

Catherine Heath

November 2014

Morning light,

Open mind,

Crossing bridge

In delight. 

Same old work,

Another day,

Typing away,

Naught to say. 

The whiff of medicine;

A darkened hallway;

A circular bath

Like a mermaid’s cave. 

Easter eggs

Are hid outside––

A childhood game

We play with pride. 

Hating them

(A father’s envy)

Insane anger––


Years have passed,

With work and play, 

Father’s gone

But eggs will stay.
