Running away from me

20 Jan



in this ancient hamlet

in this ancient house

in this ancient room

of oak beams

and leaded windows

evening falls early

in Winter.


No one is forgotten

nothing is lost.







Everyone is remembered

everything is saved.


It is only time

that runs so quickly

so easily

so cruelly

away from me.

Written two years ago. It is still running away from me.
