Let’s return

Let’s return, you and I,
to a dream – that one
we shared, hiding from the world
revolving around us
(Was it sunny?) I remember
only echoes in the dark
as we bounced off walls,
the world forgot.

The greens and browns
crossing the landscape now,
hostile in their indifference,
existing as though we care,
will slowly turn dark,
forgotten again, shadows
playing by themselves,
the world forgot.

  1. Wonderful write, packed full. I have to say how delighted I was with your header image, too–I have an old ragged copy of Strunk & White’s Elements of Style on my shelf, a sure “tell” of my age, I thought; but apparently a youngster like yourself still finds it useful 🙂
