Great reflection on the state of things left and passion lost..

DoubleU = W


Outside that window,

Grass growing tall about it,

Stands a garden.

Neglected and overtaken,



In the meadow is there,

A child’s ball left to lie,

Impressed into earth.

Color washed pale by sun,



Lying deathly by roadside,

The bicycle’s rusted carcass,

Entangled in weeds.

Ne’er to be ridden again,



Each left behind,

Memories, a past pursuit,

Forgotten games, trips.

Part of personal history,



New endeavors found,

Sought after with delight,

While old delights die.

The present alive, past gone.
