Fading

Memory fades

like footprints ‘cross the beach

rinsed by relentless tides

to pass beyond my reach

 

and where are you

my fast forgotten dream

passed on to pastures new

like dead leaves on a stream

 

that paradise

an idyll lost in time

extinct in but a trice

a broken paradigm

 

evanescent

pale ghost in morning mist

a shade no longer present

as if we never kissed

Am trying to get my head around poo-sticks floating by in a stream. Guess it's more poetic than shit drifting by......?
