Memories Spring Forth

In unexpected places

Memories spring forth in unexpected places
like wild mushrooms sprouting with the rain.

A taste, a smell, or a wayward conversation,
may deliver errant messages of happiness or pain.

The things we wish most to forget, the errors and the slights
appear like ghosts in daylight or sabotage…




Stories that matter. Emotion first and foremost.
