Healing Potion The essence of mending quarrels: Hard fought bat- tle lines - deeper than summers of sun on crow’s feet; makes me long for the wishing well where I once lost my penny. The essence of mending; reparation, countless egos & souls confined in a lucid sarcophagus. IF the heart could speak once more, it would dust the shelves of old books & trinkets to leave a needle & thread. Those finely intent stitches that make a final resting place, feel more like home. This is the essence of mending quarrels. Marc-Anthony (2018) #MarcMyWords #ShortPoetry Photographer: Patrick Baldonado Marc My Words - Short Poetry
