Heritage - a poem


The glue that
holds together
with resilience of wisdom
Forever present - the heritage


The old not
appreciated always
the invaluable antiques
Forever new - the heritage



Infused in tradition
open to new
with roots in time
Forever cool - the heritage

The celebration
of what was
The beauty of what is
Forever joyful - the heritage



Prompt by and Shared with - Poets United

      I can't decide which stanza I like more, though - I think, with time, I will be able to read these words a little practically :)
