Fragile

Fragile. color pencil sketch ~ Michael Douglas Jones



Glass ornaments,
fragile, forgotten,
break so easily,
carelessly left
clinging
to the Christmas Tree.

Children,
fragile, forgotten,
break so easily,
carelessly left
clinging
to the Family Tree.

I swept
the broken bits
beneath
the presents;
their presence
forgotten.

  2. Wow, this is so true and powerful. Having been swept under the present myself for a long time I feel this post right in the center of my gut.
