Memories On The Line

ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY Acrostic Challenge By Real Poetic

By Kelli Sheckler-AmsdenPublished 28 days ago Updated 26 days ago 1 min read

A world of washing, waving

Nostalgia hanging on the line

Nesting in my memories

Immersed till my soul feels fine

Vanishing into a feeling

Every breeze, a new start

Redesigning and healing

Saturating the heart

Anniversaries stir the emotions

Remembering what matters the most

Year after year, we cling to the notion, tethered by sweet lines to our posts

    This is a lovely poem! The title and matching art hooked me from the beginning, and the imagery of memories on laundry lines is lovely! The moments of end rhyme also give the poem a really charming cadence, like with 'line' and 'fine', 'start' and 'heart', and "most' and 'posts'. Great job!

    Love the reference to clothes, reminds me of my childhood, washing clothes by hand and hanging them in the sunshine on the line.
