The Wall Spoke

the stairs descend
along a wall
overlooked each day
but today
today the wall
spoke to me
its cold emittance
grabbed
my soul
I heard the
peace of
a hundred years
felt the patience
of family
the love of
tradition
and understood
the respect
for waiting

  1. Nice. I was thinking thoughts along this vein a couple of days ago, looking up at the hundred year old buildings across the street, wondering what memories they held. Very well expressed.
