 My fatherís house

by

Sue Marier

Translucent blue key

Reflecting sunlight

Dangling upon my chain

Adding to the bulk

In my pocket or purse

Never to be inserted in a lock again



In its time

It opened a door of love and conversation

Strained times

Often misunderstood

Words of wisdom

Passed on through the generation

So much remained untold



Time passes

Steel upon steel will never transpire

The scene repeats itself

Over and over again in my mind

The car will turn into a familiar driveway

It will find its use again

Where conversation flows again

With my father



Perhaps a key is no longer essential

It just serves as a reminder

That he will always be there

To serve up wisdom

Along with companionship

For a meal.
