His Pride and Joy

A bonneville mustang with
A dark purple hood
It’s distinct. The lighter
Purple shade of paint that 
Covers the remainder of the
Car gleams in the sun. Inside the
Cabby are leather seats; real. Accompanying
That is the wooden dashboard with 
A chrome trim. It even has dice in the mirror;

This is his pride and joy.

A  stuffed rabbit in 
A pink, flower patterned cover.
It’s once white fur now
Old, dusty and worn. One
Eye is missing; a stitching attempt
Failed; the little tuffs of cotton 
Sticking out confirm it. But the
Hands that crafted such a horrid 
Creature are long gone.

This is his pride and joy.

    Some forlorn sadness here....but it is well written with some exeptional details.

    This is excellent. I could see these as brand new. Every gets worn as life does one day. Great job and keep writing. Joseph
