Keep it alive

What do you see # 60 – 14 December 2020

( For the visually challenged reader, the image shows an outdoor scene. An old fashioned radio is placed next to a couple of candles and a wicker basket. Behind the radio is a pot full of blooming red flowers)

Step back in time
The scene is set
As it was sixty years ago
The radio still works
Wine in the wicker basket
Red flowers in bloom
He’s ready to pop the question again
To the one lady in his life
He will have to do this standing
Time has taken its toll on his knees
He waited for hours
Until his daughters came to take him home
Each year it’s the same
He waits for their mother to renew their vows
His daughters know this time next year
He will do the same, on their anniversary
Since their mother’s departure
They know this is something he must do…
