In response to Scott’s Daily Prompt, Undo

We all have those memories
That make us cringe
Those times
We wish we could undo
But if we did
We would not have those memories
To make us cringe
And warn us
Not to do it again
We would do worse

Deep Roots

By Scott Bailey © 2017

The roots of the trees are deep
In the deep of the old old forest
Digging in the dirt, drinking in the earth
Long are the memories
The past seeping slowly from
Root to trunk to branch to leaf
Ripped up.
Houses built.
