dVerse Quadrille #132

Roll On

After the icicles thawed,
and damp left the basement
through open windows,
I remember wondering

what happened to winter,
I’ve no clear memories of it.

Sometimes I’m like a stream,
not knowing where I’ve come from
or where I’m going. I just
roll on.

I think it’s because #1. during 18-months of lockdown, every day’s been the same, nothing to distinguish one from the other, and #2. possibly age.)

  1. I guess we’re all like the stream … encountering rocks, falling breathlessly, idling serenely, tumbling riotously ….. that’s life! Great comparison!

  2. I feel this deeply, Misky. The days roll on, one by one, into each other in a big heap. It’s a little disconcerting. Add to that the fact that both of my kids have graduated from HS these past two Mays, and it’s just a weird phase of life.
