Pocket of Thoughts...



 seaside 
 walking  barefoot
 wearing  my  lucky  jeans
rolled  up  cuff  sand  between  my toes
we  meet

warm  smile 
torn  faded  jeans
 worn from the storms of life
your  hand  rests in my  back  pocket 
feels  right

  4. One can always spot someone with a smile and invariably is a jeans wearer. Jeans wearers are respectable people. Nicely Truedessa!

  9. I really like the idea of lucky jeans as well! Some pairs that I have I feel that way about also. Smiles. And yes, sometimes those torn jeans have a kind of history to them & have warm memories!

    1. Good Morning Mary,

      Lucky jeans bring out the best in me I guess..and some jeans have been around with a story to tell.

  11. Thanks to Mary that I got to read this poem! Jeans used to be worn by life before we bought them through fashion houses. And the ones that weathered the storms are the best.. A relationship that fits the pockets of life-worn jeans may also have ridden many storms. I love the subtle beauties and vastness of this deceptively simple poem.

  23. What a lovely story told in so few words. I love it.

    Many of my jeans have such history. Such fond memories. That's the great thing about jeans, isn't it? Other pieces of clothes wear, we throw them away. Jeans get a little rip or start to fade, it just adds character. It adds to the story.
