weathered



it toppled over-
I placed it against the wall
that redness enhanced by drabness
which hides a story or two
I investigate for clues

"who hid you away from me?"

I do think that couch has many stories to share... if one is willing to sit upon its cushion-less seat!

That red couch is a bright spot, as is the poem about it.

There is no way one's mind does not go into overdrive when confronting an image such as this. I loved your extra line indicating a previous connection with the red couch.

"Redness enhanced by drabness." That really sums it up.

Dear gautami: Feeling this "drabness" that cries "for clues" yet love of the past stays near and dear "who hid you away from me?". How we hang onto love at all costs, even attachements associated with love, of life.
