Pieces of Memory

More by this author
Couples walking hand in hand
Their feet sinking in the light brown sand.
Waves punching the shore washing the prints away
I look at the people passing day by day.
The sun looks out on the people like a protective mom
The mid-day waves making everyone calm.
The sun partially peaking over the horizon
Like a child's head peaking from the bed he lies in.
The clouds are slowly fading away
Like a puffy afro coming to the end of its days.
The sun slowly disappears
Like pieces of your memory after many years.

It's been at least 5 years since YeVale wrote this poem in my class, and I still use it to teach similes and personification. I love to see that it's been published.   Mr. Conway
