Pleasant Stories -- Poetry 2011

Lost the first thought this morning...

it had something to do with

remembrance vs. memory.

Both having reality as a base

but one colored more by emotion;

the other enhanced more by fiction.

Memory can discolor and fade;

remembrance engages those

rose colored thick glasses...

ignoring discomfort;

fictionalizing for safety;

turbo washed scars

leave pleasant stories...
