Poetry Month Day 19 – Passing

Pages flip with startling regularity
marking the passage of time
weeks to months
months to years
years to decades

holidays,  anniversaries, birthdays
come and go
some marked, some forgotten

some treasured
enough to pass on with care
the rituals
the stories
the memories
that bring people together
across time and place

Together we recall and recite
things have seen and heard
only through the stories and memories
of those who came before

and took the time to tell
and retell
until their stories become
our own gifts to bear
