macaroni necklaces

pristine package
sent with warmest regards
from the beloved memory
of an old ghost

you were my far away soldier
i, your pined for bride

a marriage found
victoriana and letter writing

our life together
was a norman rockwell painting
lost when the house caught fire

white chocolate pretzels
hiding truffles
vibrant orange sticks
willing caramels
glistening peppermints

bing crosby’s voice is singing in the box

a sugar coated symphony
amidst red tissue paper

i am grateful

thank you for reminding me of us
and why its better this way
but most of all
for the way you happily wore
the twin’s hand painted
macaroni necklaces
