Writers' Showcase

by Ian Curtress

Can it be that long, those happy birds nests. Magic times forever past
Lifetime cameos written in memory. Time not a factor they will last
Golden interludes, helping Grandsons tangled line
Fumbling fingers unsuccessful . Blind leading blind
Wry expressions, smirks in order. Sudden giggles not amiss
Until a hook in the finger. What it is to reminisce
Episodes I thought timeless, now I must face the fact
Mind still active as before.Body no longer can react
But the joy is still with me. Life has a way to reimburse
We still enjoy those cameos. Just the players roles reversed
