a spoon and a song

October 14, 2013 at 3:15 pm 13 comments




with a spoon

and a tune from

a childhood long past.

words sung of memories,

by a voice deep with feeling.

its graceful curves of lean silver;

a reflection of a bride-to-be

along with hopes and dreams for her future.

an elegance reminiscent of dance

with simple lines – evoking wishes

of love and tranquility but

years passed through violent storms.

her lovely spoon still shines

in the hands of him

while he searches

for his dreams

to come



a simple spoon

Jordan brought home two items for me to wash in the dishwasher – a spoon and a water bottle.  While I was loading the dishwasher, Elvis was singing on my I-Pod.  When I took the spoon in my hand and noticed its curves, I realized it was a piece of the flatware I received for my wedding –  24 years ago.  And to make the moment even more sentimental was the song which Elvis began to sing – “Memories”.

    This is lovely. I return from vacation to Elvis in black leather and beautiful wedding memories from Kimberly. Two days ago, in Cefalu, Sicily, I visited a cathedral where a beautiful dark-haired bride entered the church with sunlight blazing through the stained glass windows, beginning a new journey with her love. This post is so appropriate.
