30 Days of Creativity~Day 20


do you remember those days

when we used to sit in the car and

gaze over the scenery before us?

we’d try to find hawks soaring over head or see if we could spot an egret?

we  could see the cemetery located far off in the distance

a car would sometimes wind its way among the headstones searching

we never spoke much  just enjoyed the silence

or whatever sounds met our ears see the colors of the seasons

all life comes to an end

I sit alone now or not at all

the hawk passes by and holds no interest

there are so many

the egret has gone somewhere else as if he knows

my silence  broken by the sounds of children playing

I try to smile but can’t

beavers have moved in and flooded areas

trees lay fallen that once stood

change endings beginnings life death

where are the hawks and egrets

where am I as I watch the world die

it all begins anew without me and you

I am not sitting in the car anymore nor watching

nor listening for the silence nor seeing the hawks or egrets

others replace us and watch the world go by

there will always be others to sit in as  we die

the hawk is flying over and the egret has returned

I am nowhere to be found

just pieces on the ground
