SIGNATURE RING

Unique As she was Once so vibrant Powerful And invincible Not much left of her now Other than precious memories And her signature ring That I so treasure I have a secret I’ll share with you only Come close Let me whisper in your ear My grand-mother’s ring is magical When I look into the diamond And without any effort on my part Coming to life at will Her hand appears out of thin air Filling out the ring And the rest of her body follows Like an inflatable version of herself She never speaks She just smiles Published in my mini photo/anthology book ~ALWAYS WITH ME~ 2020 AP: 3rd place 2020 Submitted on March 8, 2018, for contest HALLUCINATION sponsored by BRENDAN J SIMONS - HONORABBLE MENTION Originally posted December 1, 2017
