Sweet Things


Excerpt from Measuring For Balance by Author Demitri Tyler

Sweet Things

When the sun is smiling perhaps its
remembering a summer long ago
those painted ladies the bridge
of gold

Perhaps it’s remembering Waller Street
or the mason who laid the brick steps
that held our watermelon seeds and

Could be thinking back to all of
those hardened faces of wisdom
hearing their deep brown laughter
that warmed its heart for so long

I too recall grandma’s gaze from the
top step as my brother and I
devoured the red deliciousness;
with never a clue how fast the sweetest
things go
