Neglected

Beyond stained, rain streaked windows

softly burns a rising sun,

a glittering, motionless sea,th

a tiny sail boat drifting on an endlessly rolling tide.

Seagulls hover,

their morning wails pierce the clear and cloudless sky.

This image from a dream

amidst shattered mirrors,

tarnished cameos,

dusty lamps

and broken picture frames.

Surrounded by stacks of yellowed, mildewed tomes,

discarded myths,

boxed and forgotten-

too long neglected.

Cracked porcelain dishes,

delicately wrapped in sticky cobwebs

by crawling caretakers-

the silent protectors of

yesterday’s neglected hopes

and memories;

forsaken and forgiven by restless time;

these dusty gems

are diamond mines.
