Another post, this time in response to Open Link Night over at d’Verse poets. I’m posting this draft of a poem that I’m hoping to improve upon, any comments are welcome! I need to work on the rhythm, I’m sure I can do something with it….
When I was much younger
October meant weekends of sunshine
and the blue skies of Wales
over her mountains.
Later, it meant trips abroad
or jaunts in an old car,
a camera full of photographs,
my brain filing future nostalgias.
Today October is not the only month
tinged with sorrow
while I watch a mind fall apart
and try to focus on remembering
our good times.
