11 March: FOWC The Toothbrush

AI art: bathroom scene with toothbrush in a cup, towel, and tonic.

Yes, Perhaps So

I’m visiting my mother.

I wake in a strange bed,
and make my way down the hall
to wash my face.

There next to the sink
is my toothbrush topped with
a pea-size drop of toothpaste.

Mum’s reliving my childhood.

When I was a kid, she did this, too.
I assumed she was being frugal.
Maybe it was all about affection.

Note: This was several years ago. My mother passed away a few years ago. AI Digital Artwork is created using Midjourney. Imagery and poems ©Misky 2023 Written for Fandango’s One Word Challenge #FOWC “Toothbrush”. Shared on Twitter #amwriting @midjourney

    Always difficult traveling down Memory Lane… sometimes more so than not.
