We remember the old times....


Long Time Ago


From his Seniors' Home 
window an aged man smiles 



remembers being 
a kid of twelve, stepping 
over limbs beside the creek 



blue eyes still bright and 
inquiring, an eager boy under 
wrinkles of flesh



speckled trout, sweet 
smells of summer calling--



twitch in his willow pole, 
clunker of a catch 
mouthing the dew worm



ma noticing well-traveled jeans, 
"Need washin'," always said



mud-caked from sunny 
days on old Ogden's Creek.



Memories, never shy away.
