One Single Impression -- Gold

This weeks One Single Impression cue is "gold." For other poems on the same theme check out One Single Impression between Sunday October 12 and Saturday October 18.

Hearts bound by links of gold
grow as one, a living sculpture
carved by the years.

What a lovely tribute. How fortunate to have them still.

The years do carve us, maybe out from inside the rock of our need to be something other than what we are?

Many thanks--
