My poem for the final Sunday meditation prompt of the online retreat.
Of all the long hot summers passed me by
this is the one I can’t reconcile
Backs turned, looking down the path
an empty road, maybe a leaf blown by the breeze
The signs of life are few
but for the plants sprouting up
through cracks in the pavement
Is it still so light?
The notes I made in the yellowed paperback
are hard to make out
Maybe it meant something back then
Now the choices are
mourning or defiance
I still have those old photos…
