Memories Found




I stopped when I opened the small, corked jar,
and
for one, brief second,
I stopped breathing.
More memories,
certainly 
unexpected.
Who would have thought that someone
at one time
placed these roses in that jar.
The fragrance was still there,
not strong, just a whisp of scent to remind me
of 
that Mother's Day,
that anniversary,
that birthday,
I'm not sure when, 
but the memories flooded back.
I'm just not sure which one.
Surprise!
Memories in a jar.

Beautiful Mallory. I find things when I'm cleaning drawers and there will be an old card or some momento found. Makes me smile all over again.
