Written for: Poets and Storytellers United
Weekly Scribblings #91 - Personal Symbols (posted by Magaly)
"I invite you to write poetry or prose inspired by a personal symbol, or a thing that represents or stands for something else, especially a material object or an action representing something abstract to you (i.e., luck, remembrance…)."
I wear it proudly–
diamond ring. Each
time I place the ring
on my finger, a waterfall
of memories spill in.
Grandma's red nail polish,
scent of chicken soup,
and homemade knishes.
I wear it proudly.
I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York.
My goal is to create and share poetry with others
who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve
in you, and feel your sparks as well.

A beautiful experience, beautifully stated. I love your ‘waterfall / of memories’ that ‘spill in’, and the details of what they are.
You’re not linked to this prompt post at P&SU. (I saw it because I follow your blog.) Perhaps you’re planning to link it this Sunday instead? I do hope so. It deserves a readership.
Thanks so much, Rosemary. I thought I was linked to this?
