Lavender Moon and a Silver Photograph This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

piles of soft, clean laundry
ghost of a child perched
on a whirring white washing machine

flower petals on the walls
tossed away, falling
pink silk

scent of lavender
as I trace the moon
against the windowpane

outside
wind strokes my hair
red leaf flutters to the ground

I stare at a dusty photograph, wondering
when I was ever this innocent?
silver mornings come and go

Wow. That really gives a couple of images. I love the way you made it so wistful, and how those memories seem so faded. Really beautiful work!
