"What makes a flower a flower? And why doesn't the dandelion qualify?" -From my poem "Dandelions"

Each person is a living museum filled with memories and stories to share

Admission is free
When they want to let you see

All that they have ever seen

To coax the stories out of mind and into conversation
You must provide the living museum with vivid elation

Museums tend to let you in when coffee and dessert is presented

Share with them an artifact from your yesteryear
And perhaps they will share with you something more than what may appear

You can learn about a different wing of the museum that may have not been mapped

For we all have our memories and our stories to share
We must be sure to do so before they are no longer there
