Poem: Layers of Tape

Layers of Tape
by Joanne Faries

like tree rings

reveal holiday years

attic haul down the ladder

knife slash to open

treasured memories

happy new year return to the faded box

screech of tape wheel adds new layer

but I can still make out my late mother's writing

wishing me a Merry Christmas

long ago


  1. Lovely, Joanne.

    We've got builders in our loft at the moment, so I've got everything in my dining room - it's not good, just before Christmas though :-(

  2. Isn't it nice to read letters and cards from loved ones who are no longer with us?
