Here are the two words selected by Ruth Scribbles, from last month’s #SyllablesOnly challenge:

COMFORT & WORN

 

My

Armchair

Soft comfort

Worn out, threadbare

Like me, it’s timeworn

Yet happiness lives there

relief for my aching back

My very tattered worn out friend

It started life in my mother’s house

Something no amount of money can buy…

  1. I can feel how cozy sitting in that arm chair is! For reasons related to losing my husband and son, I have either sold or donated most of the furniture I have had for the past 20 years. I have replaced it all with a hand-me-down from David’s brother’s girlfriend. It was a decision that was easy and hard to make but it brought heartache, not warmth and love.
