FINALLY FOUND MY LUCKY CLOVER

I have been searching high and low for a theme that *I* liked. One that had a pleasing color, but didn’t have a transparent background, which makes the text terribly difficult to read. This is it!! I love the cool green and the water droplets… now I feel at home.

My mom had a knack for finding four leaf clovers. She just spotted them with very little effort. She’d be walking along and bend down all of a sudden and there it was, her four leaf clover. She also found change on the ground all the time. I’m not sure if this means she was just lucky, or that she never seemed to look up. Actually, if you knew my mom, it was probably a bit of both.

Recesses of Memory – by Liberty

Running backwards
Down the halls of memory
Feet tripping on words
Words past spoken
People past known
Places past gone
In the deepest recesses of memory

Some things better left forgotten
Some better remembered
Bringing tears
Joy, anger and
Frustration
Some play as a cinematic showcase
Some come in frightening flashes

Sitting on grandma’s knee
Age four
Seeing a friend in a pool of blood
Age 17
Some things better remembered
Some better left forgotten
All in the deepest recesses of memory

Opportunities passed by
Risks taken regardless
Of consequences
Surprises discovered
Both upsetting and exciting
Looking back, like through the
Windows of a home by a child on a dark street

Can’t stand to see anymore
Make it stop please
Running to the end of the hall
Doors slammin closed as passed
The darkness tries to catch
And encase, strangling
Back against wood breathing heavily

Close the door.
