In your hands by Liyona

Rosy moments

Flavored every part of my smile

As I remembered how the little

Bird flitted and flew

Into your hands

Gentle

Strong

Warm palms

Where under the sun

You toiled

To build our home

Our sanctuary

And as the lines around your eyes

Darkened and grew with time

Lilac scented memories

Bring a smile to my lips

For I know

With you

There will always be home.


This poem is directly inspired by the Tuesday Writing Prompt Challenge found here at Go Dog Go Cafe. The prompt this time was “in your hands”. I am working through older prompts to help spark my imagination. Tune in tomorrow to see the new challenge for this week! Photo by Paweł Czerwiński on Unsplash.

Liyona is an “average joe” kind of writer who likes to think about ordinary things and then write them down. Ever since she can remember, she has been rhyming words and creating lyric poems. During her college years, she took a more serious bent toward writing and started to post on her blog (The Life and Times of a Quirky Character.) Currently, she resides on the East Coast of the United States just north of the country’s capital.
