SWEET MEMORIES

Sculpture by Mark Newman

Alfonso, the 92 year old sculptor sat outside on a bench. His watery blue eyes had extra tears flowing down his cheeks.

He sat, staring at a small sculpture not bigger than one of his old hands. This sculpture took his memories way back to when he was only 28. It was summer. He was in a nostalgic mood. He had met this dainty young woman. She was breathtaking beautiful. Alfonso could see her as his model for a sculpture.

They decided to meet in his small studio. He made some drawings of her.  They started talking and had a wonderful time. He sculpting away, she telling him about her past. She also had the most wonderful voice and would sing while he was working.

After Alfonso finished the small sculpture she just disappeared. He never saw her again.

Now after many lonely years he still missed her. Alfonso only had this lovely artwork and his memories left. Very sad….
