Witness, a poem about a lost love

**Witness**

You are still a vessel of memories for me you know.
This is what I miss the most:
filling your pot as mine
and dipping in now and then
to taste a morsel

I've placed you crudely among others of your ilk,
my witnesses,
another abandoned craft in the back field
home to spiders and rabbits and an occasional snake.
I pass you daily with my dogs, 
master myself now,
and wonder if you are still
water worthy
or well

And I wonder too
if your knife was sharp
when you carved a place
to put me

***
I've always liked this one of mine from back in the day. Thank you for reading it.

The image is mine, of a bouquet my daughters gave me one opening night. After it had faded and dried and was making a mess on my kitchen table, I decorated my compost pile with it.

Hey @owasco! Glad to meet you here! Have you tried Partiko? It’s a really cool Steem app! You download it, login using your Steem account, and boom, you can use Steem on your phone!

What’s even cooler is that they reward you Partiko Points for using it, and you can cash it out for STEEM!

Join using this link: https://partiko.app/referral/vintage-m , and you will get 3000 Points as a bonus! Let’s see who can reach 30000 Points first!

The photo is lovely, @owasco, and the poem is very powerful. You have such a good way of painting pictures with your words.

>I've placed you crudely among others of your ilk

Haha! I have a place like that too!

I'm here since you are the adoptee this week, with my tiny vote. I'm giving you the suggestion to post with @esteem. They give a nice upvote once a day if you do :)

Thank you for your kind words, and your upvote which is far larger than mine.
How do I go about posting with esteem? Steempeak has been quite persnickety of late, but it has a bunch of features I like.

You have to download it to your laptop with an exe file or your phone with whatever that is. They have a discord and the links are there in the help somewhere. I can invite you if you are on discord. I'm fitinfun there too. 

Then you just load it and post. I use it from my laptop and have it in my programs. I also use esteem as one of my tags. I do not know if that is necessary, but it helps me to keep track so I only use them each 24 hours.
