Memories And Observations

By John I. Blair

Memories are easier
To write about
Than observations, facts.

I remember that my youthful hair
Was auburn, wavy, thick;
I observe my hair today is gray.

My memories are mine alone,
Quite personal; and few
Will check me out on them.

If need be, for convenience,
I make things up
And tweak what really happened.

But with observation risk exists
Of witnesses, whose timid take
May contradict my own.

No worry, though; with passing time
All observations, bit by bit,
Domesticate to memories

And mind their manners,
Purring soft,
Responding to caresses.

2006 John I. Blair
