butterscotch pockets

(for uncle don) 

you held them there
near your heart,
those golden pieces of sun,
where our tiny hungry hands
could always reach.


A second offering for today’s NaPoWriMo.

    Oh this is so charming. Nostalgic with a touch of sadness underneath.

    I can taste the richness of those ‘golden pieces of sun’. Butterscotch is my dad’s favorite candy and this made me think of him. 🙂
