May 2, 2016 - Reminders


REMINDERS

Memories left here and there
small reminders
or not so small
old and tattered
falling apart
broken and patched
and broken again
to remind us
or better yet, haunt us
I was here
long before you ever existed
I was here
we thrived
there were many of us
you think you invented it all?
we came and conquered, too
bricks and stones and mortar
crumbling
the trees the same
perhaps moved a foot or two
but the same
the ducks and the river
everything the same
with a spattering of man.
