Prompt 144: Meld

Thanks to Patti of Creative Cottage Dreamer for this week's prompt, meld, and her own wonderful contributions, below.

If I were a book....
My cover
would be eye catching-
with colorful words,
fabric and lace
and vintage images...

My binding
would be
but well- worn
and well- read
lasting the test of time...
(starting to fray maybe just a little)

My pages~
like the years-
melded together -
with special memories
and experiences...
of the people
and places and times
that make my life my own
filled with
the poetry of my life.

There would be pockets
and little niches
that would house
the special tokens
of my life
important icons
important to only me.

Hopefully this book
would be handed down
from generation to generation
and read often
