Always So Many Memories

I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I now live in Daytona Beach, Florida. .


Like two white swans,

upon dark waters,

slicing through the waters -

leaving ripples behind.

Coming ashore in a strange land,

leaving footsteps behind,

letting everyone know,

that I was once there,

in the middle of a strange city,

with a man-made lake,

surrounded by an artificial forest,

that looked so very real.

Each place,

each step in time,

brings back so many memories.

It was just something,

to please the eye,

two shadows,

two silhouettes,

mingle as one.

The lake reflecting,

the tears of many,

the sighs of longing,

of wanting to find a home -

a place to call my own.

Perhaps to fly away,

if only I could be so free,

as free as those swans,

that could rise up and fly away,

to find another lake -

in another space and time.

There to reflect upon memories,

that forever shimmer and shine,

of a time long ago in rhyme.
