My Love My Rotting Leaves (opening verses)

Apples are no treat for me
(or anyone really)
nothing to excite,
nothing like chocolate.

Chocolate for my cache
(a bag full)
on October 31
and Scarlet in her blue windbreaker.

Water towers reach high up
(and so did I)
behind her head for a hand
of fine blonde hair.

Oak trees all around the silver thing
with graffiti all over,
our name up there somewhere,
but the aroma of rotting leaves…

it is good to see that you are still keeping your hand in...

*hugs & love, Cat

When someone reads your work
And responds, please be courteous
And reply in kind, thanks.

I just had 16 implants cut and drilled into my upper and lower gums and jaw bone.
I cried for 3 weeks
But I stayed the course here.
See me for my details if you like.
You always have a good thing to say for me Cait.
Thank you,

of what happened to my comments, but for this gem, I will post again! I really enjoyed the thought that our memories can be triggered with sensory stimulation or vice-versa. Yeah, you got me thinking! Is this your start of the newest Round Robin?
If it is, it's a good start! Geez.
