Inner Sanctum ~ list poem

Nostalgic and nice to remember simpler times.


Inner Sanctum

no bigger than a walk in closet
home to everything important
twin bed tucked into a corner
meeting place & library chair
dresser, of course
clothes have to go somewhere
1950s school desk tucked into the open closet
already too small in 1968
one small record stand
holding the center of the universe
record player
one day replaced by a turntable
air filled with the voices of prophets
Eric Burdon, The Beatles, Buffalo Springfield
one small room
window on the world

The prompt for Day 28 of National/Global Poetry Writing Month at
is to write a poem describing a bedroom from your past.
