Layers

Photo By: Carrie

Slowly they grow one
then another
Laying

Stacked striped horizontal
Always
Ready
for another layer thick

or thin now
a memory sandwiched
Between
Hurts and sorrows sunsets lovers
enemies favorite foods
Forester Pass and Alaska
Dreams
Taste of gin and tonic

The wind mixing life
into a vision look
carefully
It’s yours enjoy it
