Steamer Trunks

Baggage we won’t let go of
refuse of the journey
streamer trunks dragging behind us
not willing to let go
why do we carry the history
when God has already forgiven
our sins upon the cross

May 23, 2013
inspired by reading
of poem by George Herbert
about love, read by Shirley Vezina,
at Poets’ Corner
monthly poetry reading,
at the Suncook Senior Center
