Took the pic with a polaroid the gold
trim on dragon shows orange, and the
waffle weave doesn't show up well
It's very beautiful fine china other
side of spout is broken


~*~


 


Chipped china tea pot
Dragons mouth is the spout
Now missing one side
After forty five years


Still a prized gift from The Captain
My uncle JB in Merchant Marines
Dead over ten years now
Missed and never forgotten


Stories he told worth more than gold
Gifts from around the globe
Precious gems and artifacts
I was so fortunate to be his niece


The tea set he gave me as a child
Still treasured all this time
Now pot holds a sweetheart bamboo
Which I'll cherish with tender care
To remember him rest of my years


etw-2006

Memories. Life would be unbearable if we did not have them. Still, we should not become so staid as to not want to make new memories. I particularly liked this offering from you. I guess I am just a sentimental slob.

This makes me wobble right now... as you can imagine, I am only JUST starting to realise the value and sentiment attached to all the things coming out of my Mother's house - and bringing some of it into mine and learning how to "hallow" it afresh... Sweetheart Bamboo sounds to be just the thing to capture the spirit of your love for this favoured Uncle. Like you have said on one of my poems recently, death actually RELEASES love and esteem in even greater measures sometimes. Beautiful, thank you. Kate xx

Your uncle sounds like a wonderful man, Tiger Lily - and treasured keepsakes we hold dear to remember our loved ones are always wonderful, too.

I have a little tin teapot that my Dad used when he did the night shift at work..
I still treasure that tangible link to him, knowing his hands left their indelible physical and spiritual imprint upon it !
You awaken fond memories with this nostalgic and poignant pen !
Super picture of an important memento !
Love,Peace and Harmony

What a sweet and tender tribute to your uncle who was a diamond in your crown of life, Eileen. It is the little treasures that end up meaning the most to us somewhere down the road. A memory is something that cannot ever be replaced by something tangible but something tangible often rekindles the memory. Wonderful poem, girlfriend!
Take care,
Sherry
