Asleep or Awake?

She found a picture
She had put away
And tucked inside her memories
Was long forgotten

Faces from her younger days
Emerged in her
Like reddened
Molten clay

Now she sorts and wonders
Which are still alive
Are dreams dreams
Only
When
You’re
Sleeping?

About Mary (tqhousecat)

I am a wife and a mother of two grown children. I love Jesus and sharing my faith through written words. I currently have a poetry blog and also write on medium.com. My main focus is hope in Christ. I only wish that whoever reads this will be blessed, inspired and occasionally amused.

    I love this part, especially:
    “Faces from her younger days
    Emerged in her
    Like reddened
    Molten clay”
