TERRACOTTA WARRIORS

TERRACOTTA WARRIORS

A Poem by April Child

Like bookends

sat 

in comfortable silence

nestled 

amongst biographies

bursting with stories

amusing and

not so amusing

that map lives

forever entwined

in friendship

stoic and resilient 

as terracotta warriors

until 

they crumble to dust.

Those warriors are strong beings.. seen them... but fascinating. Ancient beings - stayers, remaining in the memory, leaving private thoughts, birthing different stories, experiences. '.. lives forever entwined - in friendship - stoic and resilient .. '

The past in whatever form produces more and more.. as have your rich words. Thank you for yet again sharing.
